Please donate towards one of the relief funds for the victims affected by the bush fires in Australia. My daughter in law and granddaughters live in the Gippsland area which is in Victoria about 4 hours drive from Melbourne. I have been extremely concerned about them, but hopefully we are over the worst of it now provided we don't have too much more extreme heat. Gippsland has been badly affected by drought over the last few years and have been suffering badly so I thought it might be nice to ask if anyone could donate to this fund below, but of course there are many charities asking for assistance.

https://www.gerf.org.au/ and it is on facebook as well https://www.facebook.com/gippslandemergencyrelieffund/posts/2696004900464868

Thank you very much. Anne

Also thanks to Vixen and Carey who have allowed and actually suggested I posted this.

Thanks ladies, yes there are many charities. Here are a few that I found here,
the last few are for the animals.

The Salvation Army The Salvos have launched a disaster appeal to support the
communities affected by the devastating bushfires. To donate to the disaster
appeal, you can call 13 SALVOS (13 72 58), donate at any Woolworths checkout,
or donate online here.

Australian Red Cross The Australian Red Cross have launched a joint disaster
appeal with the ABC to support the communities affected by fires, and have raised
more than $2 million already. Donate here

RSPCA The RSPCA have launched appeals in Victoria, NSW and South Australia to
assist in their rescue and treatment of the animals most affected during the fires, but
also once they clear.
HELP THOSE AFFECTED

WWF The World Wildlife Fund have set up a “Help Save Koalas” fund.

To help the NSW wildlife victims, you can donate to the NSW Wildlife Information,
Rescue and Education Service

Yes I know a number of people in the affected areas, it's just terrible but I was happy today as my daughter in law and granddaughters came to Melbourne for the weekend. The authorities were very worried about today because we were expecting high temperatures again, but the rain came and temperatures cooled, but they say that it will be months before they get all the fires out and unfortunately we aren't long into Summer. The hot weather usually hits in February.
