Aussie Fires

The kind and heartfelt generosity of millions if not billions of dollars from other countries and people overseas towards our fire appeals have been amazing. What generosity. Even gay porn stars in the US have been raising money for our fire ravished nation, so I've heard.

The resources and offers of people power have been even more amazing, from first world countries to third world countries. Fire fighters from Denmark? Really? Armed forces from Papua New Guinea? Really? Who knows what from Solomon Islands.

Keep in mind this before you donate your hard earned.

Australia is a very rich country being among countries with the highest living standards in the world. Due to the generosity of people and own resources I think the people of Australia will be ok.

But our animals are not ok. The fires have been a disaster for animals large and tiny in Australia and if you wish to donate, please direct your donation towards an animal rescue charity that will help the creatures who have survived these catastrophic fires but may be injured, re-establish environments and so forth.

  1. Unbelievably horrific Andrew. Hard to believe the fires have been raging on for so long. My son and family left yesterday to go back to Sydney, they weren't to Keen to leave Perth.I did have a chuckle when I read about your aquarium visit with the twins, my red headed three year old grandson has quite the temper too 😉 Not so 'little' Jo sounds like she is growing into a delightful young lady. I hope yourself and R had a wonderful Christmas and all the very best for the new year 💙

  2. I saw a video on Youtube made by Aussie teens who had gotten into their car and gone out to rescue Koalas. The car was filled with Koalas and they were in the process of hydrating them while they drove them to rescue.
    I've seen other videos that have broken my heart.

  3. Why should porn stars or gay porn stars not give money ! I think they are even more generous for animals then for human beings. Animals are innocent, humans not, and in their profession they must know it !

  5. Yes.
    Our animals (and our flora) need huge amounts of money and support. I fear that some are lost forever and grieve.

  6. Well said Andrew and EC our natural environment and the animals and plants that live in it all need our help.

  7. Can you list a couple of websites of reputable charities for the animals so I don't accidentally donate to some shysters?

  8. I can't watch or read the news or videos without weeping, but I do try to follow what is going on nontheless, and so agree with your emphasis on the animals. And the environment, as EC correctly points out.
