25+ Pics That Sum Up The Hell On Earth That Is Taking Place In Australia


6 My Family Have Been Fighting These Fires On Our Farm And Our Community Nonstop For Over A Month

My Family Have Been Fighting These Fires On Our Farm And Our Community Nonstop For Over A Month
This is a picture of my Dad getting 5 mins sleep on our front lawn, while my brother keeps watch over the fire burning at the top of our farm after he finished his 10th 12 hr+ day in a row fighting voluntarily in the community with the RFS NSW.
My family have been fighting these fires on our farm and our community nonstop for over a month. They are tired, they are sore, and they are running out of resources.
Today I heard my Dad cry, he said “Jen I have never seen anything like this, it’s never ending”
We still have over 50 days of summer left we aren’t even half way and there is currently no end in sight.
Please don’t become numb to what’s happening. Don’t get caught up in the negativity, the politics, the facebook news, the drama!
Australia is on fire and there are brave people all over the country VOLUNTARILY fighting day in, day out to keep our lives and homes safe.
These firefighters need our support more than ever!
This should be our one and only focus.
To all of the people helping directly and indirectly around the country Thank you! To everyone else don’t forget to donate what you can to your charity of choice, every little bit will help! This is far from over!
To my family, I can not express how proud I am of you all! I love you and am forever thankful 
But what are the other effects that the calamity has had? Well, for one, Australians are becoming jaded with their government and showing their anger. 20-year-old Zoey Salucci McDermott refusing to take prime minister Scott Morrison’s hand perfectly encapsulates the country’s anger. “I’ll only shake your hand if you give more funding to the Rural Fire Service,” she said.
Meanwhile, the transport minister in New South Wales, Andrew Constance, told the media that “this is not a bush fire. It’s an atomic bomb.”
But there is a silver lining to the smoky clouds rising over the Land Down Under: the bushfires are bringing out the best in some Australians. People are showing what they’re worth by helping out their neighbors, rescuing animals, and doing what they can to stop the fires from spreading further.

In fact, the entire world’s reacting to the situation as best as it can. People from half-a-world away are donating what they can to help the people of Australia. While even celebrities are taking steps to secure funding for firefighters.
For instance, comedian Celeste Barber raised 24 million Australian dollarydoos (nearly 17 million US dollars) for the New South Wales Rural Fire Service. The best female tennis player on Earth, Ashleigh Barty, promised to donate her Brisbane International prize money winnings worth 250,000 US dollars. The event starts Monday. US singer Pink and actress Nicole Kidman both pledged 500,000 dollars to Australian fire services.
