Can you help? Toiletries and underwear drive for Queensland flood victims

A short and sweet one.....

I'm calling on all the regular readers - and new passers by - of this blog who normally read, then click away without commenting! There are many, many of you who visit here daily without so much as leaving a cheerio. This time, I'm asking you to have a heart and setting you a challenge (and hey, you still get to retain your anonymity!). What could be fairer than that?

A trusted long-time blogging friend has done a very good turn and posted some information on her website. Clarinda at L-Plate Greenie In The Making is calling for any and all help in the form of new (not used) items for the relief of Queensland residents who have lost everything. This is a legitimate and trustworthy drop off point! So rest assured anything you donate will reach flood victims.

A copy of Clarinda's post is below (or you can view the post here on her blog):

Flood Drive
Donate underwear & toothbrushes to help those who have lost their homes in the QLD floods.
Due to many families being devastated by the floods in QLD, getting basic items such as underwear and personal hygiene items will be difficult. Roads are still cut and shops are closed.
By donating men’s, women’s and children’s underwear, singlets, toothbrushes and other small personal hygiene items we can help the flood victims immediately.
You can post any donated items to:
Flood Drive
PO Box 469
By Feb 10th
You can watch the progress of this drive right here
For any queries contact Clarinda at
**items must be new**

Please share this on your blog, twitter and facebook. 
Lets do something proactive.
