    I just found out that Ellen Degeneres started a Go Fund Me. I added her at the bottom.

    I agree about the leaders. But right now there are people and animals who need help. Any donations I send will go direct and not through Go Fund Me. There are Aussie members on ELR who started a thread. I'll post that as well for anyone who wants a detailed understanding of what's happening at the moment. There are also vape shows with reviewers, etc. happening with prizes to help the cause. Info at ELR thread which I'll post below.

    Thanks for all the links!

    I asked to join the FB group. A woman in one of the groups mentioned it, but I couldn’t find it. The crafters are pretty hung ho to help, making stuff to donate, or to sell to donate the profits. Maybe I can enlist my local yarn store to get more people on board.

    You're a love to consider it but fair warning.....they can't receive any more pouches right now. They've been inundated to the point where they can't handle the crates being flown from every corner of the globe! If they need more in the future look into the instructions on what materials to use. I read that yarn can not be easily sterilized and the animals claws get stuck in it. You would do better to find out for yourself, I'm not much of a crafter, just reading up on the articles. I do remember reading something about encouraging crafters to make koala teddies, etc. to raise money.:)

    Honestly, unless people are burying their heads in the sand, how can you not be concerned? Australia is taking the hit but this is about all of us when all is said and done. We can't ignore the fact that our planet is changing at a rapid pace and we better wake up, get prepared, and start doing what we can to minimize the suffering. My eyes are wide open.

    @DeloresRose Hi Delores Rose:)....is this the FB group you were talking about? Up top there is a link to the Citizen Times article about the pouches. There is a link in that article leading to this. It's called Animal Rescue Craft Guild in case the FB link doesn't work when I try to copy it here. Fingers crossed.....

    DIY Down Under.... $4065 raised 14 hours ago.

    ETA: I've been so busy running around trying to get these posts up in other forums that I missed the show! Sorry for the confusion, I believe they ran out of prizes and it's over now. The show, anyway. The list of prizes was amazing. They may have reached $7000
