I quote the blogger: ". . . a writer by the name of Tali Lavi is organising a project involving books being donated to victims of the Victorian bush fires. She is also asking writers to donate signed copies of their books. So if you are a published writer with spare copies to hand, or anyone with some spare books about the house, please think of donating." The writer Tali says "I've been wondering what I can do for those people who have been affected by the terrible fires that have raged through Victoria. There are so many stories of devastating loss and those fortunate to be left with their lives are lacking any possessions." Tali goes on to seek donations in order that "our stories and the stories of others will help them to see through the smoke and transport them to other, more beautiful, places than the ones they might occupy now."
Australians would be better served by donating money to a recognized and respectible charity.
