Queensland Flood Relief
I'm not from Australia; never been there, but people and animals are suffering in the Queensland flood, and we can help. Even if it's a small contribution, every little bit makes a difference...
When was the last time you felt panic? I mean absolute dread. When was the last time your heart sank down into the pit of your stomach, and your blood ran cold with the kind of sheer "holy shit" that forever thrust your life into two chapters: everything before, and everything after that moment of realization that you had sound, sane, rational reasons to panic?
Have you ever experienced drawn out panic, otherwise known as shock?
This is what a whole region of people in Australia is experiencing right now. Disaster struck Haiti, and people donated. Disaster struck during Katrina, and people donated. And it's happening all over the world. When we become unfeeling of other people's pain, we slip toward a world full of panic without hope. A world in a state of shock. There will always be a need to keep giving, even if it's only a small amount.
This could happen to any of us. Be grateful if it isn't you, and then please give whatever you can to help. Even if you can't afford money, surely you can spare a little space in your journal for a link. Differences aside, whether we like it or not, we're all part of one world.
shelldevil is organizing a fundraiser to produce charity resources to help the flood relief. Their goal is to raise at least $500 to donate to the Queensland Flood Appeal. A few examples of the outstanding resources being offered for this charity...
