My Country


" I love a sunburnt country,
 A land of sweeping plains,
 Of ragged mountain ranges,
 Of drought and flooding rains,
 I love her far horizons,
 I love her jewel sea,
 Her beauty and her terror -
 The wide brown land for me." 

  -- Dorothea Mackellar OBE

I LOVE MY COUNTRY!

The second stanza, of Dorothea Mackellar's poem, 
describes Australia so exquisitely.  

As Queensland faces such terrible devastation at the hands these terrible floods, I am constantly reminded and moved - by the news reports, and by the growing social media attention - of the generosity of spirit and charity that is shared. 

We are living in extraordinary times and we are surrounded by extraordinary people - whether we know it or not - these people shape our lives and help us to grow, and continue to learn, and prosper, and sometimes... just plain, continue. 

Last year, I was blessed with some amazing people helping me in ways I will never be able to repay - and I will be FOREVER thankful. 

I know I seem to push a lot of charities sometimes, but I firmly believe in giving - It is something that was instilled in me from a young age, by my extraordinary father.

There are so many people and animals needing help right now. 


It makes me truly proud to be an Australian, hearing such brave stories & watching our nation's spirit & support amidst such disaster & hardship.

PLEASE DONATE! As when the water clears, there will be so many in need... And even though they will never be able to repay you, I guarantee you, they will be FOREVER grateful for the love and support.
