The southern states of Australian were devastated by the worst bushfires in our history over the weekend. Many people have lost their homes and over 100 people have lost their lives.
This is the worst natural disaster that Australia has ever experienced and you can help out by donating to the Australian Red Cross Bushfire appeal:
Our thoughts and prayers are with all of those affected.
I got an email from a contact in the UK Red Cross recently asking me to put a link to their site where people in the UK can both donate money and also find any relatives that might be missing or affected by this tragedy.
Here are the links for those living in the UK :

Thanks to all for all the messages of sympathy and support.
