I would like to extend my deepest sympathies to all involved in the VIC bushfires, what a very sad tragedy that has taken so many beautiful lives. So far they have counted 181 lives taken and thousands of houses, schools etc destroyed. Everyone is in such shock and wondering what they can do to help..
