Generosity of everyone

It is amazing how generous people can be; here in Victoria, across Australia and across the world. So, far the Australian Red Cross Victorian Bushfire Fund has raised at least 51 million today.

And everyday, there is a new fundraising event, from cricket matches, AFL games, to tonight’s channel nine telethon Live streaming of Channel 9 telethon for Bushfire Fund. It is beginning to be difficult to keep track of all the events. Herald Sun is attempting to list all known events in case there are con artists out here who are trying to benefit from all this.

Personally, I’m looking forward to tomorrow, not because its Friday the 13th, but because Coles will donate all profits earned on Friday to the Red Cross bushfire fund. It is the only time to shop at Coles.

    "Coles will donate all profits earned on Friday to the Red Cross bushfire fund. It is the only time to shop at Coles."

    Yeah… considering the sorts of deals supermarkets force through on suppliers, perhaps the media should be saying "Farmers who supply Coles will have part of their income diverted to the Red Cross", rather than Coles itself…
