How to help Australia fight the bushfires

I was going to write a blog today about resolutions or what 2020 has in store and I wanted to wish everyone a fabulous new year, but all that is kind of lost in the horror of watching the bushfire tragedy unfold for our Australian cousins.

If you have somehow missed the news about the bushfires burning all across Australia then you will find it horrifying to learn about the millions of animals that have perished, the thousands of homes burnt and the human lives lost so far in this fire season.

Temperatures have been cooling over the last few days and that has given the fire fighters a tiny chance to catch their breath, but with no forecast of rain and temperatures due to soar in the next few days things are looking grim.

We have a wonderful family of writers and readers here at Love Is The Best Medicine, many of us live in Australia and/or have family and friends affected by these devastating events. Our hearts are aching for you all and we are sending thoughts and prayers for a quick resolution.

Those of us miles away are watching and feeling helpless. We want to do something to ease your pain. Know we are with you and feel for you.

  1. Thank you, Louisa. I am close to some of the South Australian fires and the devastation is heartbreaking. We have never seen anything like this before. Lives lost, property and land destroyed and 500 million animals killed. The firefighters have been incredibly brave and, somehow, have managed to save many lives and houses. Let’s hope there’s an end to it all soon.

  2. Hi Louisa

    They really are terrible and I am not that close to them but the smoke is terrible and I see that it is making its way to Auckland sadly, we really need rain and badly fingers crossed it comes soon

    Hugs to everyone affected

    Have Fun

    Helen
