I am struggling to find where now. Surely they new more donations.
    @AB @MB @Rosco @rusty_nail. Do you know if your local CFA is taking anything? I really only have tomorrow to deliver this stuff as we are going away...

    I will ring our local CFA tomorrow actually and see if they can help...
    @mudski on the news this morning they said they didnt want clothes or food,, just donations.
    Great to see that comedian lady raised more the $20mil astonishing when you think about it
    Only took 48 hrs.
    Where I am visability was about 100mtrs at 7 this morning

    Unbelievable isn't it! I found it astounding that this person (I believe she is a social media influencer) has raised that much money and the red cross has raised about 10 million less. I guess people believe all of their donation will end up with the communities through Celeste, rather than being eaten away by the administration of the red cross etc?

    It is extra ordinary really. I think she was early and first and prominent enough to become the steam train.

    At the end of the day she can't manage $45mill. She will either have to Create an Organisation to manage $45mill or divy it out to or organisations like the Red Cross, RFS, CFA, Salvos, etc who will all be employing people to manage what will be $1Bill worth of Aid. This will require a Machine to manage otherwise it will never be accounted and no way to ensure it goes to the right people. And that costs money.

    i understand your points mate, they are very valid, i just think most people dont understand that? to give you some idea of my skepticism of those larger charities though, Tegan has a colleage who worked for one of those larger charities during the black saturday fires. according to her, none of the money that was donated/raised for that cause ended up going to support the communities who were affected by those fires...

    100% this money won’t see the pockets of people that actually need it.

    It would be nice if it could buy a few more fire trucks, fire fighting equipment, build more fire sheds, help communities in need, help those who lost everything, help whole communities wiped out. But all this money will make these big charities richer and line their CEO’s pockets...it’s fucked up! Rant over

    Yeah rah I have to agree with you on this Krisso. I only see a wolf dressed in sheep’s clothes. Who do we trust these days to make sure the money actually goes to those who actually need it though?

    When it all calms down a bit, we could arrange a meet up in one of the affected areas, and spend our money down that way. I feel for the owners of the petrol stations and supermarkets that were robbed blind during the crisis.

    This, this, this and more of this !
    IMO this is the most crucial part. Not abandoning the region, and not having the "oh the place is burnt to the ground, ill go elsewhere" mentality. Its so important for all those areas, spending money and time there, making them feel NOT left out after all the horrors. NO charity can give them that.

    Saw a military fuel truck heading out of town. Good to see things are getting done.
