Queensland, Australia is really doing it tough at the moment. They have just started the recovery process after the devastating floods and then they receive the bad news that they are expecting a tropical cyclone. Not just any tropical cyclone but apparently one that would be Category 5 and would be the worst Australia has experienced. So Northern Queensland braced themselves for the onslaught of Cyclone Yasi's 200km+ per hour winds and all the damage they would cause.
Though there has been a trail of destruction left behind by Yasi, there has yet to be any reports of deaths. After 35 deaths caused by the floods it is definitely welcome news, I hope that it stays that way. The Premier's Flood Relief Appeal is now the Premier's Disaster Relief Appeal, so please help or donate to a State that sorely needs it. For more information on how to help or donate please refer to my previous blog post on the Queensland Floods HERE.
The other way you can donate as well as have some very guilt free shopping is to buy something from eBay's FASHION.TO.AID, where a host of Australia's leading designers and retailers have generously donated items to auction for this very worthy cause. The best thing about this is if you purchase from FASHION.TO.AID, 100% of all the money made will go to the Premier's Disaster Relief Appeal. So get yourself some new shoes while helping out those who really need it HERE
