A belated Happy New Year to all Australian Baby Blog readers and visitors :)

I’ve had a fantastic Christmas and New Years break with my kids – finally tackled toilet training and am ready to have a great 2011! And to truly have a great 2011, I would like to put out the call to help out our fellow Aussies that have been affected (and are still currently battling) the terrible floods that have hit QLD, VIC and NSW.

Here is a small list of online retailers that are donating part of their sales to the relief fund or are holding auctions or raffles –

If you are running an appeal or know of a great one, please leave a comment and I’ll update this list asap!

If you haven’t already, please consider making a direct donation via the Premier’s Disaster Relief Appeal by visiting http://www.qld.gov.au/floods/donate.html. You can also donate goods and items via GivIt.

Remember, donating is not just needed in times of crisis, so if you can’t do something now, consider it later in the year when you can :)
