Victoria, Australia's wild life suffers terribly from the wild fires: please help!

Kangaroos, possums, wombats and reptiles are scorched!

Help is needed and you can donate to the Bush Wildfire Appeal. Almost a million animals have perished but more are starving and showing up on the doorsteps as they are docile creatures, unafraid of humans. People are bringing them to the animal sanctuaries and the shelters need donations to keep them safe and healthy until they can be released back into the wild. Sacrifice your week's worth of cappuccinos, burritos, pizzas, takeout or snack foods and use the money to donate and save the wild animals.

The currency exchange from US to Australia dollars favors the US dollar. You can use a credit card to make a tax deductible donation online.
