A giveaway* for the QLD flood appeal

The raffle will be open until Wednesday 26th, 9.00am JST as requested by Toni


I am sure you will have heard about the devastating floods in Australia, the area that the floods cover is massive, the size of France and Germany combined, many people have been affected, lives and homes lost, personal horror stories are starting to be told such as the 13 year old boy who sacrificed his own life for his younger brother, and I am sure many more will follow. 
I heard about the flood appeal auctions via Jodie at Ric-Rac, thanks to Toni at Make it Perfect, a group of bloggers have got together to hold auctions, sales, raffles or giveaways*, she will post a master list of all those involved at the weekend.

Many of those involved are from the crafting community of which I feel part of but I also feel part of the online Montessori community and I though it would be good to get the Montessori community involved too. I have a lot of Aussie friends and family who live out there and I know there is a big homeschooling community, I can't bear to think how many children are affected by the flooding for some their whole community washed away in minutes, so please take a minute or two and look around you, now imagine it all swept away.

For my small part I am holding  giveaway*
