I came across this image where the kangaroo is jumping across an orange sky. Two different perspective of view came across me. One – the kangaroo is jumping across the sunset and heading back to their nest. Two – the kangaroo is running for their life under the red fire forest.
While the brush fire has now got better but the animals and families there are not okay yet. Many organizations are accepting donations to help with these devasting fires; donations to help communities rebuild, to help injured wildlife, and to keep the amazingly brave firefighter teams going.
Samaritan’s Purse – Spearheaded by evangelical pastor Franklin Graham, Samaritan’s Purse has had boots on the ground in Australia for the past three months. According to the Samaritan’s Purse website, the humanitarian aid organization’s mission is to provide “spiritual and physical aid to hurting people around the world.” Samaritan’s Purse has a location-based in Sydney that works with local churches to set up command centers near disaster zones.
