What a week it has been in my town of Brisbane! I'm sure you have all seen the devastating pictures on the TV - so heartbreaking. Also, sadly it seems other parts of Australia are now flooding too :-(
But, I can say I feel so proud of the efforts of the thousands of volunteers, and the positive and enthusiastic way the cleanup has begun in Brisbane. It has really restored my faith in humanity, and I am feeling a very proud Australian!
I am very thankful that my home has not been damaged, and my business is still operating.
At Lanternshop.com.au, we would like to do our small bit to help! We currently have our Australian Lantern on sale for $4.56, and this is proving to be very popular, with Australia Day just around the corner. We will dontate $2.00 per lantern sold between now and Australia Day to the Premiers Relief Appeal!! Will we make our donation on 27 January 2011 (I'm hoping we sell thousands).
