With the recent floods, I have been asked to reshare a recent Tip…. how to go about volunteering your time or donating to areas that need it. There are a number of volunteering opportunities around the country, and in particular, BlazeAid will be setting up camps to help those affected to rebuild. To find out about specific camps and opportunities to help out, you can go to their Facebook page (www.facebook.com/Blazeaid) or their website (www.blazeaid.com.au). For other general volunteering opportunities around the country, visit: Emergency Volunteering (Queensland) – www.emergencyvolunteering.com.au/home Australian Emergency Support Volunteering Register (WA) – http://emergency.volunteer.org.au NSW Volunteering – www.volunteering.nsw.gov.au Volunteering Queensland – www.volunteeringqld.org.au/web Volunteering Victoria – www.volunteeringvictoria.org.au Volunteering SA & NT – www.volunteeringsa.org.au Volunteering WA – www.volunteeringwa.org.au These websites provide a wealth of information and outline the different types of volunteering within the community, tips on getting started and resources. If you are not able to provide ‘hands on’ assistance, but would still like to donate goods, you can get in touch with GIVIT (a not for profit organisation who get donations to those who need them). For more information on what is needed and how to donate, go to their website (www.givit.org.au)
