Victorian Bushfires

"Local CFA firefighter David Tree shares his water with injured Australian Koala at Mirboo North after wildfires swept through the region" Sam has third degree burns to her paws but is recovering in the Southern Ash Wildlife Shelter in Rawson with new friend Bob (another koala also rescued from the Victorian bushfires) My heart goes out to all those who have lost loved ones in the Victorian bushfires & also to those who have lost homes, pets, livestock and businesses. Australians need the prayers & thoughts of people from around the world. In times of tragedy it can be the gift of hope to know that others are thinking of you with love and support. The loss of human life, wildlife, pets & livestock is just heartbreaking, you cannot but cry with the many stories of devastation, loss & courage. Please give what you can, make a donation to the Red Cross bushfire appeal – every cent counts (the minimum donation online is just $5)


  1. This photo is the one that did it: it made me cry.

    Donation sent. Now where's my kleenex?

  2. Oh thanks so much Michele, need a whole box of Kleenex for times like this. Sam the koala and now Sam the man whose wife and 3 children perished in the fire while he was at work. I sobbed when I heard his story on the news.
