Grantham Flood Support (Qld)
I have received so many kind enquiries about my well-being after the recent floods here in Queensland. Fortunately, I was quite a distance from the worst affected areas, and only mildly inconvenienced by all the rain and a few roads being closed.
We have all been helping out in any way we can, and because I am unable to contribute hard physical labour for the actual clean up, I am doing whatever I can to raise funds to help people get back on their feet again.
Grantham is a small town in the Lockyer Valley, just west of Brisbane, which was particularly hard hit, with a huge flash flood that swept away everything in its path with no warning at all. Those who survived are rallying to help each other, and have set up an appeal for donations and a raffle. I have contributed two sets of my handmade jewellery to the raffle.
"Grantham Blue": handmade sterling silver charm bracelet, with blue, red and green glass beads, and wire-wrapped sterling silver charms. Two pairs of matching earrings. RRP $70
"Grantham Gold": charm bracelet with red and black Swarovski crystal beads. The chain is made by linking tiny gold plated lobster clasps together. Matching earrings. RRP AU$85
I know there have been many calls upon your generousity. If you would like to contribute to this appeal, please visit the website http://www.granthamfloodsupport.com.au/ where you will find all the details. It would be wonderful if you would forward this on to your own networks of friends and colleagues around the world.
Thank you so much for your kind thoughts, and here is wishing us all a safe, and healthy life in the foreseeable future.
with love, and best wishes
