Flood volunteers in Brisbane

January 15, 2011

Amazing scenes over the last 2 days in flooded Brisbane, the capital of the state of Queensland in NE Australia as thousands volunteer in all capacities to clean-up  the capital city and help the entire state recover.

Romance Writers of Australia – always ready to lend a helping hand- have started a collection of fiction books for the flood appeal.

As a member who has seen the devastation firsthand, I’m begging everyone to get behind this and send books so we can start getting them out to evacuees who will be spending weeks and months in tents, evacuations centres, or living with friends and family.

Please, help them have more in their lives than endless hours of worry about finances, insurance, and employment. 

Please, help them pass the long waiting hours reading a book.

What we need?
FICTION BOOKS! Romance books, children’s books, young adult books, genre books, whatever – either new or in sparkling condition.

Please send them to:
RWA Flooded Communities Book Appeal
PO Box 1717
Noosaville Post Office
Noosaville BC
Queensland 4566

When to send them?
Now! And any time over the next few months. The books will be boxed and delivered to the appropriate libraries/schools/neighbourhood centres/community centres in batches as soon as the communities are ready to receive them. We’ll be liaising with councils, libraries and schools to ensure this is done appropriately. Feel free to pop a note inside, or if you’re an author, sign it.
