    Default How to donate to flood victims ...

    Premiers Flood Relief Appeal - details on how to donate in person, on the net, over the phone and by mail.

    Adopt-a-Flood Victims Family for school supplies
    - helping school children who have lost everything in the floods have all the necessary supplies they need to start school.

    RSPCA Flood victims
    - help our furry and feathered friends through this crisis as well.
    Lifeline's Queensland Flood Appeal

    Donating blood - Red Cross Blood Service

    Playgroup Children's Foundation Keep Kids Playing Flood Appeal - assist Playgroup families and Toy Libraries in flood-affected areas by replacing toys and equipment that have been damaged due to the rising waters.

    A couple of others...

    GIVIT - they have a virtual warehouse where you can list items that you no longer need. They work with charities and match what you have to donate with families/individuals who need that particular item locally to you.

    Baked Relief
    Cooking meals (as well as donating things) for families in need

    I will update this page as I come across more information. If you have a link to specific organisations please PM me the details.

    Another note:

    For those of you who have facebook, several WAHP businesses have set up charity auctions, where all the proceeds are going to the Premiers Flood Relief Fund.

    One I am following mainly because it's not hosted by a business (ie not on a business FB page, therefore not promoting one main business) is the QLD Flood Relief Fundraiser.

    There are many more out there at current, but am loathe to add them here because it really is business promotion, whereas the one above as I said is a stand alone auction. Basically all items are donated by various FB business people (mostly WAHP) and you can bid on any item you wish for as much as you like. All monies raised are going straight to a good cause. So, if like me you live regionally and options to help out are limited (although still available) this might be a good opportunity.

    Also, I would like to remind everyone to please check out the organisation you are donating too ... unfortunately there are people out there who think nothing of taking advantage of this situation to make money for themselves.
