Victorian and Queensland Flood Relief

After the devasting floods in Queensland and Victoria, many organisations, companies and crafters are helping out with the relief effort.  Many craft sites are auctioning goods and services with the proceeds going to the flood appeal. Here are some of the sites:

Aid Organisations - monetary donations and and information on volunteering:
 The Salvation Army
The Red Cross
Premier's Disaster Relief Appeal (Queensland)
givit  - a South Queensland organisation that links your donated goods with registered charity and relief organisations.
i can do that - information on how to volunteer in Victoria and oline registration to volunteer in future emergencies
RSPCA Queensland - The RSPCA does not get any government funding and their shelters in Queensland have been flood damaged. The Victorian RSPCA site states that they are managing with their current resources.

  1. Please don't forget the RSPCA too. They don't get any government funding, and they desperately need help to get back on their feet so they can start to help animals again. Their site is www.rspcaqld.org.au . :)
    Any little bit helps. Thanks so much :)
