Queensland Flood Relief

You may have seen on the news that  Queensland, Australia is experiencing horrific flooding.


Lives have been lost, homes are under water and thousands of people are living in evacuation centers.

You can see some of the devastation here.

In an effort to do our crafty bit we have joined Toni’s Flood Relief Appeal Auctions.

You can read all about the appeal on Toni’s blog Make it Perfect but basically, we are offering up 5  Fat Quarterly subscriptions and holding a raffle.





Photobucket
  • This giveaway is open to everyone no matter where you live.
  • To enter this giveaway you must donate $5 to the Premier's Flood Relief Appeal.
  • You may enter as many times as you like but each entry / donation must have a separate receipt number. 
  • Leave a comment/s below with your receipt number.
5 winners will be drawn on Wednesday 26th January.

Please help spread the word!

  16. I tried, but it won't let me pay. Maybe it's not set up to take credit cards from the United States? I want to help! Any chance anyone knows how to donate to them via paypal?

    ReplyDelete
  17. My bank just called because they recognized my attempt as suspicious and put me on a fraud alert. Definitely need to find another way to pay for the donation. Just a FYI in case anyone else runs into this.
