HOW YOU CAN HELP:
Donations can be made online at www.salvationarmy.org or by calling 0800 53 00 00. Donations can also be posted to The Australian Bushfire Appeal, Salvation Army, PO Box 27001, Marion Square, Wellington.
New Zealand Red Cross said those wanting to support the bushfire fund could do so by visiting www.redcross.org.nz or calling 0900 33 200 for an automatic $20 donation.
Cheques can be posted to; Australian Bushfire Appeal, Red Cross House, PO Box 12140, Thorndon, Wellington 6144, or donations can be made directly at New Zealand Red Cross service centres.
I would also add that when you support Australia in times of trouble, you are supporting ONE OF A HANDFUL of nations who would return the favour when (not if) we have our own large scale disaster.
