Jean and all,
I am glad to know that Cairns and Townsville have avoided the floods
and that you are not affected.
There are hundreds of thousands of people who have been forced from
their homes in the Gladstone and Rockhampton regions and lost all of
Farming and the minerals industry, which I am a part of, has been
affected in a big way, which has many many people unable to work until
the clean up is complete.
Knowing many people who have lost a lot, I am contributing towards the
support appeal to assist the people who have lost everything.
If people feel the same way as I do, the Salvation Army, an amazing
Australian social support organisation, is collecting funds to ensure
those hardest hit have a chance to recover.
Please consider donating a few dollars towards this tragedy.
