Our thoughts are with all those affected by the devastating bushfires which swept through Victoria this weekend. Over 100 people are dead and more than 700 houses were destroyed, making this worse than Ash Wednesday. My family lives in country Victoria and while they have been lucky so far, there is always the threat of disaster for them. I can only imagine how awful it must be for those who have lost homes and loved ones.

The 2009 Victorian bushfire Fund, to assist individuals and communities affected by the bushfires in Victoria, has been launched by the Victorian Premier John Brumby in partnership with Red Cross and the Federal Government. A number of corporate organisations including NAB, ANZ, CBA and Wesfarmers have also contributed to the fund.

Red Cross Donations can be made using their secure online donations form.
