As I sit here reflecting on the incredible event that came together today I’m struck by so many different thoughts.

The true heart of our Fire fighters. Even with all of the bushfires raging around our country, our firies are still thinking about how they can help others. This is Rach from Patterson River Fire Brigade who together with her team has collected hundreds of much needed toiletries and other items for people we support. We’re blown away by this incredibly thoughtful gesture, especially at a time when our country is literally burning to the ground. Please join us in thanking Rachel and everyone from the Patterson River brigade who helped make this happen. You really are true heroes.
