The Australian Red Cross has launched an appeal to help the hundreds of families affected by the devastating bushfires. Please donate a little if you can, phone 1800 811 700 or donate online here. The phone line and website are both very busy so you have to persevere. Money is badly needed to help people get through this.
Update: Meet Me at Mikes has listed some other ways you can help too, and they are collecting toys and donated goods in their Fitzroy shop.
