To Our Australian Friends

The words and pictures coming out of Victoria, South Australia are just horrific, with 200+ dead and more than 11,000 square miles burned to the ground. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Contributions are being accepted at the Salvation Army in Australia, amongst others.

  1. Oh, it hurts so much to think of these poor people and creatures. I lived in Southern California 13 years and the wildfires there have also been devastating!

  7. Thank you for caring, it means so much to us all. Our beautiful country has just experienced the worst natural disaster in its history. The fires are still blazing ferociously in country Victoria this morning, so this is not over yet by far.

    We still have 6-7 weeks of a long hot Summer ahead, so please keep us in your thoughts.
