There's a great way to donate to the Red Cross Bushfire fund, and also enjoy some fabulous shopping at the same time. A dear friend, feliciafairy, at Etsy's Dust Team has set up a special Etsy shop, where 100% of proceeds go directly to the official Red Cross appeal. Red Cross has also promised that 100% of the appeal will go directly to the victims, so you know ALL your money will go straight where it is needed.

It's made almost $3000 in just a few days, and it's only just started. There are heaps of gorgeous items donated by Etsy sellers from Australia, and all over the world. They are also kindly donating postage, so that means free international postage anywhere in the world.
