Help for the victims of the Australian bush fires

I am sure that all of you have heard and read about the horrific bush fires in Australia - whole towns wiped out, people incinerated in their cars, a death toll approaching 200 and expected to grow. It defies imagination.
I read Australian blogs on a very regular basis and on every one of them is talk of these fires. But these women have all come up with ways to help - auctions, links for the Red Cross etc.
So, here is my little contribution.

First a link to news:

Bushfire Emergency - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

Here is the link to the Australian Red Cross:

Australian Red Cross

And the American Red Cross:

And here is a link to Handmade Help:

Photobucket

I have also started a Facebook group which includes all these links:

Facebook Help for victims of the Australian bush fires

Please join, send the links on to your friends, donate, contribute, help in whichever way you can. Thank you!
