This week I'm sending my love to all the Australians who are suffering. To those in North Queensland who have endured the floods and to those affected by the devastating bushfires in Victoria - the worst in Australian history. As I write this the death toll stands at 173 with 800 homes lost and 5000 people now homeless. If you are able to help, donations can be made to the official Victorian Bushfire Appeal 2009 via the Australian Red Cross website.
