Since a week before Christmas, we have been following the Queensland flood reports. With 86 communities, half of Queensland State affected by the flood and a death toll of 16 as of today, many people and animals have not been too lucky.
As if this isn't enough, there have been reports of people's homes being looted in the midst of all this, and also scams collecting flood relief appeal.
Though we very much would like to head up and help with the clean up, we are confident that the community, volunteers, and rescue workers lead by local Mayors and premier Anna Bligh have things under control.
It brings tears to my eyes knowing how many have been affected and could be homeless for weeks or months to come. At the same time, I admire the spirit and courage of Queenslanders at a time like this. Our thoughts are with you.
So if you want to help those who are affected, animals and pets, please make sure you check in official sites, here are some that we have used:
