Victorian Bushfire Appeal 2009

This week has been one of tragedy, grief and loss. The whole country is mourning and our family is watching the news closely with updates about the Victorian bushfires. Please consider donating money to the Red Cross. Our scrapbooking business will donate 10% of all sales to the Red Cross too!
The 2009 Victorian Bushfire Fund to assist individuals and communities affected by devastating bushfires in Victoria has been launched by the Premier John Brumby in partnership with Red Cross and the Federal Government. An independent panel made up of community leaders will oversee the appeal Fund's operation. The panel will be chaired by the Hon. John Landy AC who will oversee the urgent preparation of criteria for distribution of the appeal funds to affected people. Donations are continuing to flow in via the Red Cross website and phone, and there has also been an overwhelmingly generous response from corporate Australia. Donations can be made using our secure online donations form or by phoning 1800 811 700.
