We can all do something...

I saw these images, and have heard the news. My heart goes out to the people of Australia and those living in Victoria.

There is so little I can do from across the globe, but something, anything is better than nothing. If you, like me, would like to help in some way, I have listed a few links:

  • Tia at Camp Follower Bags has started a Flikr group called the Bushfire Quilt Project. She is collecting star squares that measure 12.5" to make quilts to be sent to the recipients in Victoria, Australia. For more information check out her blog at Camp Follower Bags

  • Pip at Meet Me at Mike's has a wonderful list on her sidebar of things you could do. Of course you will find a link to the Australian Red Cross to donate funds but you will also find:

  • She has many more links as well!

  • Melly and Rosie of Melly & Me is hosting a silent auction, with 100% of the funds going to directly to the cause.

  • Handmade Help is another great resource, here Cindy will be listing all the auctions and sales of items from which the proceeds will go toward assisting victims of the Victorian Bushfires. If you have an Etsy shop and would like to donate all or a portion of the funds from your sales, she will list you on her site as well.

I wish there was more I could do, but if we all donate some of our time, some of our pennies our prayers, good thoughts and well wishes it will add up to some comfort to those who have lost so much.

The images on this post are from the AP wire.
