Thoughts on the Bushfires Tragedy

As Anthony Fernando said this week, it’s hard to write something inspirational in the wake of something so terrible. Over 200 lives lost and incredible devastation. Amongst the many, many options of donations etc., I liked the following one where people have the option of helping in many different ways.
