Australia is facing the natural disaster of bushfires that are engulfing much of the country. This is one of the worst natural disasters in the history of the nation. People have lost their property and so much more. These fires have done much ecological damage to the nation including a severe impact on the animal population. Thoughts and prayers are cliches but the people of Oz could use as much as they can get. Also, you can provide practical support through donating to the Australian Red Cross if you can.
