Like so many Australians I have been watching the horror unfold on the TV for the past several days. My heart goes out to the families who have been affected by the terrible ‘Australian Bushfires’ this past weekend. What these people have been through and are still going through is beyond comprehension. It makes me sick to the stomach to know that this was deliberately lit.
These poor people have lost everything, their homes, their memories, all their worldly possessions, in time all this can be replaced, what can’t be replaced or brought back is their children, their Mum’s and Dad’s, their Grandma’s, their friends.
I came across a fellow photographer’s blog Kris Leigh from Newcastle and saw that she was donating her session fees to the Red Cross to directly help the victims of the bushfires, I thought that was a lovely idea.
So for anyone booking a session from now until the end of March, please visit the Australian Red Cross website, donate your $120 session fee via the secure online donations form, send me an electronic copy of your receipt and we will organise a time and date for your session.. Please e-mail first so as I know to reserve a date and also to let me know to expect your receipt!
