Awesome info artnomadix.
I've already made a purchase at the shop, some lovely things going up, AND going to such a great cause.
Some people will be homeless for months. I think you'll find every Australian will know someone directly affected. I've already heard from two friends today who have water up to their ceilings - they have lost everything they couldn't move in time.
Please consider what that would mean for you personally - losing everything you own and love - and donate OR make a purchase.

This is a great cause, and so close to home for many of us.

I contacted someone at that e-mail address about 24 hours ago and haven't heard anything back... should I resend the e-mail?
