Aussies make up a fair percentage of the folks who I converse with online, many from Queensland. And while we in North America are bitching about petit differences in politics, they are drowning.
Readers are reporting to me that family members have lost their homes and loved ones are missing. As it stands right now, the Brisbane Dam is at over 150% of it's stress limit and could well snap.
These are a few of the images I've seen in recent hours

Now, I hope that since you can see that an industrialized nation such as the one you live in is in serious trouble, you may wish to help. Yes, thoughts and prayers are needed. But these people need emergency services, food, clothes, the basics. And the easiest way to give is monetarily.
The Queensland Premier's office has set up a flood relief appeal. It's secure, you can donate from anywhere on the planet, and you can donate as little as a dollar.
Go HERE right now to find out how to give in a flash.
Thank you and I will keep you posted. Also, relief orgs feel free to leave your links in the comment.
