    Default Makes me proud to be an...

    ....Australian

    Tonight (Sat evening) the commercial networks of Australia (all three of them) combined in a history making event to similcast a telethon raising money for Asia and the tsunami victims. Over the course of 2 hours the Australian people raised over $15 MILLION for the cause and there is still more coming in. This is then combined with over the $100 MILLION we have raised privately or through corporate donations to charities.

    This STILL is on top of the $1 BILLION the Australian government will be giving the Indonesian people.

    I just want to say how proud I am to be part of such a wonderful country that thinks of its neighbours.

    I lost my brother-in-law in the Bali bombing in 2002. I know what it is like to lose people you love through tragic circumstances. The people of Bali were never to blame for what happened and they needed our love and support afterwards. My brother-in-law in his death helped raise money to provide schools and shelters to the Indonesian people.

    Myself...I donated $200 tonight which was ear marked for some new drum skins. Fuck em, skins can wait, people are more important. Donate now to the Red Cross or where ever you can. Cheers all.

    Yeh we kicked a bit of money in earlier this week too. Very happy to see the money the governements kicked in, thats a huge comitment, done properly (over 5 years) and I think its just fantastic.

    Population wise we're a pretty small country, but I think we rock the fuckin house whenever we get the chance. Whats happened over there is just unthinkable.
