Proud to be an Aussie

Well, what can I say. I am so proud of my country right now. As Australians we have all rallied around each other and supported the survivors of the tragic Victorian bushfires. As most of you know we had a televised telethon last night. Sportsman, including some Australians best AFL Footballers, Cricket players, models including Miranda Kerr, Megan Gale and Lara Bingle, we even had a special visit from Orlando Bloom!

In one evening we managed to raise more $63 million! Plenty of celebrities from overseas offered their support as well, including Mel Gibson, Olivia Newton John, Hugh Jackman and loads more. Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban donated $500,000 to the appeal along with Michael Buble and Anthony LaPaglia generous donations of $50,000. Russell Crowe has also done his bit for the future to raise money and build community centres in the worst affected areas.

Well done Australia!
