Flood Appeal

The floods in Australia are spreading their tentacles into every corner of the lives of those who live in the affected areas. I have been to Brisbane many times but I just didn't think about the places that would have been affected This morning's paper reported on the State Library in Queensland and the Art Gallery and the media is bursting with stories about the horrors and disaster of the floods that are affecting not just Queensland, but NSW and Victoria. I just received an email from the TangoNuts in Queensland who are, of course, right in the middle of it and it galvanised me into sending a small donation from TangoAustralia to the Queensland Premier's Flood Relief Appeal. 
I have never seen the devastation such as we are being shown by the media, I have never smelt the stench that I am told comes after a flood of this kind, or known the despair of losing everything. I hope others will join in contributing something to this, and other appeals. I fouhd this video among the many on Youtube and found it very moving.

postscript: The Milonga de Mis Amores on 22 January at the Gladesville RSL will be a fundraiser for the Queensland Premier Flood Appeal.
