While most of us in the United Starts are digging out of a lot of snow, our friends in Australia are currently suffering with extreme flooding. And they need our help. In the state of Queensland (which has been hardest hit), an area the size of France and Germany combined has flooded. Just the other day, a freak storm created a 26-foot wall of water that washed through the town of Toowoomba. It killed 9 and left 66 people missing.

Hundreds of thousands of people have been affected and the cost of rebuilding homes, businesses and infrastructure is estimated as high as $5 billion.

They really need our help. You can help the Queensland Government by donating directly to them right here. Every bit will help.
