Unless you've been living under a rock for the past few days then most of you are aware of the earthquake and tsunami in South East Asia that has killed over 24, 000 people and still rising.
So far, six Australians have been confirmed dead and eleven are still missing. Not to mention the thousands of Indonesians, Thais and Indians and other tourists from around the world.
During a time of the month where we all celebrate Christmas with our families and friends, this great tragedy. Of the six Australians that have already been confirmed, one is a 16 year old boy from Victoria with down-syndrome. Another, a three year old girl from NSW.
My plans are this:
One person who i elect from each capital city (Brisbane, Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Darwin and, yes, Hobart) will organise their own big cruise. Each person joining on the cruise will be asked to donate a minumum of $10. I am also hoping that this person that has been elected will be able to get in contact with a radio station or newspaper and hand out flyers, basically advertise it as much as possible. They will then have a planned route where they can stop in the capital city and collect money from the public. Also, cruise through small local towns and collect more.
I will be opening a bank account so that everyone can transfer money to that account once all has been collected. The money that we collect will be divided throughout those families who have lost loved ones.
Due to a lot of organising, this event will not take place until about early February (I'm thinking Sunday the 13th or 20th).
to organise your city's cruise for this fund raising event, you must be able to organise events well, have contacts and be committed
