Shoe Box Of Love & The Beach

Posted Jan 21 2011 12:00am
Have you heard about the devistating floods in Queensland, Australia?

Last month flooding in Queensland forced thousands of people to evacuate their homes and towns. There have been 70 towns and more than 200,000 people affected. So many have lost everything they own and unfortunately so many do not have flood insurance. The death toll is currantly at 30 and there are still many more missing.

My uncle lives in Brisbane in Queenslands capital and the end of his street is blocked off with the floods, hes very lucky hes on a hill.

I have been in disbelief as I watched the disaster unfold on the news. But dispite the disasters its unbelievable how aussies have come together to help others start to rebuild their lives from scratch.

I was going to make a cash donation until I found out about the Shoe Box of Love Collection via Facebook. Although money will help the communities rebuild, I think the shoebox is a more personal donation which will go directly to someone who is worst affected by the floods.

My shoebox is for a female aged between 18-25 years.

I included shampoo, conditioner, body wash, hair ties, tissues, pads, toothbrush, toothpaste, moisturiser, a pen, notebook, sudoku book, socks, razors, watch, nail file, body sponge and chupa chups :) All things I thought would pretty useful in a time like this.

My shoe box all ready to be delivered...

So, wondering how can you help!?

* You can donate money via the Premier's Disaster Relief Appeal .

* If your into crochet, Sarah of the blog Crochet a Rainbow is collecting crochet squares made by bloggers to make rainbow crochet rugs for the flood victims. What a beautiful idea dont you think?

* If your in South Australia you can donate a shoe box of love, the drop of points can be found on their facebook page . The boxes must be delivered before Australia Day 26th January.

No donation is too small.

Last night Mikey and I headed down to the beach to watch the sunset. Were so lucky that its only a few minutes drive away!

Nothing nicer than watching the sunset down the beach on a warm night...

Sorry to delay posting my giveaway, I thought the flood crisis in QLD was much more important.

you a lovely weekend :)
