I am not sure if you have heard yet, but there is an event called Extend a Helping Hand going on in SL. The event runs from Jan. 11th – Jan. 31st. It was brought upon us to bring awareness of the floods and devastation going on in Australia right now. Sanura Sakai has brought several designers (2 of which I am wearing in these photos) to help raise funds. Please have a look at her website for more info on how to help or even if you want to know more of what is going on: http://katjohnston.com.
In better words than my own:
“-= About the Cause =-
Extend a Helping Hand is an event put together by Sanura Sakai to raise funds for the Premier’s Disaster Relief Appeal. The aim is to provide support and assistance to those Queenslanders affected by the recent massive flooding.
The flooding has already affected 22 towns, as of January 1st, and has forced many from their homes. It has had a devastating effect on many people’s lives and livelihoods. An area larger than Germany and France combined has been affected by the flood-waters, and the impact will still be felt for some time to come.
Just to give you some idea about the effect of the floods in my own home-town of Bundaberg, visit http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Bundy-Floods-2010/176597162370872?v=photos
