Victorian Bushfire Appeal Shop….

We all know how devastating the bushfires in Victoria were last weekend.  So many people lost their property, their livelihood, and too many people lost their lives. There has been a wonderful response from the public, both in Australia and from overseas, in pledging donations to help those so badly affected by the fires.

If you’re not familiar with Etsy, it is an online site where people sell handmade goods. The Australian Etsy DUST team (Down Under Street Team) has set up a shop where Etsy artists can donate an item(s) that they’ve made for sale, and all the money will go to the Australian Red Cross for distribution to those in need.

There is a wide variety of beautiful items available, and at this point in time, $2800  (update on 14.2.09 total $5000) (update 15.2.09 $7500!!) has already been raised.

I’m donating some of my button flowers.  If you’d like to help out, either by buying an item or by donating an item, please check out the store:

UPDATE: 14.2.09  I’m delighted to say that both of my bouquets have been sold. But there are many other stunning items for sale, so please dig deep!
