Tasmanian Bushfires - donation and emergency info

Here is some information for those seeking to assist in response to the recent bushfires in Tasmania:

For donations: Red Cross and the State Government are working together to provide support to people who have been forced to flee their homes or lost their homes due to the fire. See the link below for more information about their response and if you or your organisation would like to make a donation of money or goods. All of the money will go directly to those in need with none going to administration costs.
