I've been watching the horrible waves of water wash over parts of Queensland on the television. Some of the images have really got to me - the family of three stuck (literally) and stranded inside their 4WD in the middle of what looks like a muddy lake, the people waving from on top of the roof of their house which is almost 100% submerged in water, the constant updates from my fellow crafters and tweeters who are in and around the Brisbane area as the waters start to seep in... all of this has just made my skin prick up with oodles of goosebumps.
So, That Vintage is doing its bit by having a 12 item Auction to raise funds for the Premier's Disaster Relief Appeal on the That Vintage Facebook page.
The auction has started and will end on Monday, 24th January at 9am EDST.
There is plenty of time to save the shrapnel from your daily coffee hit, and bid it on a piece of That Vintage that you get to keep, knowing that your bid is going to a good cause - be sure to tell all of those who you think would like to get in on the action and help out!
I'm safe and dry down in Tasmania, so this is the least I could do.
What have you done to help those in need?
