Over 50 houses have been destroyed in the WA bushfires. I can’t even fathom the emotional and physical devastation that so many people are going through at the moment.
I have been trying to explain it to Autumn by saying a 4yr old girl called Claire, has lost all of her Barbie dolls and all of her clothes in a big fire. I then ask Autumn what she thinks we could do to make Claire feel better. At first the thought of giving away any of her toys was an absolute no. Then every now and then she will go into the toy room and pick out something that we can send to Claire.
With so many people having lost treasured items that will never be replaced with any amount of money, the WA community has really come together and charity organisations have been overwhelmed with the amount of items being donated for the victims. Although the donations of items are greatly appreciated some collections points are having to turn away the donations as there isn’t enough room to store everything.
If you are looking for a way to help then a cash donation is absolutely the best way to go. As little as $20 will go along way to helping the victims of this bushfire tragedy.
Go without your coffee for a week, wash your own dog or do what ever you can to put aside as little as $20 to help the bushfire victims.
