    http://www.rspcavic.org/images/home_banner_bushfiresv2.jpg I know it's going to take millions of $$$ for these survivors to rebuild their homes not too mention there state of well being but we can't forget the little critters out there as well whom have lost their family and homes. I choose the ]RSPCA's Emergency Bushfire Appeal.

    I'm voting for the Red Cross too. I bought $63+ on 3 Feb and clicked the Buckscoop eBay link a few times before I went into eBay and used Buy It Now. I'm not sure if it went through however.. So is there any way to check if it was successful? Hope it does as it will go to a worthy cause that is very close to home.. Thanks :flowers:

    Sadly we can't import any of the date from Ebay's new program :( There are several Facebook group that you can join up to too that will lead to Red Cross Donations. Check out the ]Buckscoop Facebook group for a few that we have joined up to

    I choose the RSPCA, because I have already donated a substantial amount to the Red Cross and I think many people are overlooking the RSPCA.

    What about Habitat for Humanities who will help rebuild homes for those in these affected areas:- http://www.habitat.org.au/Page.aspx?pid=416&gclid=COCDorOJ3ZgCFQUwpAodezJgeA A lot of people were uninsured and will need help building a new home. Alternatively the Victorian SES are volunteers who help with all sorts of emergencies and have played and integral role in helping with the bushfires. All donations here go to a very worthy group of people.

    I choose the RSPCA's Emergency Bushfire Appeal. The RSPCS will assist the forgotten animals. We humans manage to stuff up their environment, in the name of being " green" we forget that Australia has learnt that it must burn. We humans no longer permit these controlled burns to occur and now this it the devastating result. Hundreds of humans dead and literally millions of plants and animals all dead :cry: The creatures that somehow managed to survive need and deserve our support.

    I'm for Wildlife Victoria http://www.wildlifevictoria.org.au/cms/index.php More likely the funds will get to where it is needed.

    Please consider a donation to the CFA who have tirelessly fought the fires since saturday and are still fighting the fires.
  • nod
    CFA is a great idea too We only have a few days but it appears that the RSPCA are leading the pack so to speak :) Adorable pic :D.. thanks Fairybelle

    The winner is RSPCA with the majority of votes :D We only made $20.35 with the eBay fund last month, but the good news is.. [SIZE="4"]Buckscoop will contribute an additional $200 donation to the cause[/SIZE]
