A chance to help out!

Posted by Jazza - February 4th, 2011

Some of you may be aware, but to those of you who are not, in the last month alone, Australia has been severely effected by horrific natural disasters, the recovery of which will not only take billions of dollars out of our economy, but have torn apart homes, farms and crops, possessions, and the lives of many good Australians.

I recently set up a simple place where you can donate any money you are willing to spare to help provide relief to those who need it. 100% of funds raised will go directly to the cause of aiding in recovery from such disasters.

If you have a few dollars sitting in a paypal account or credit card you don't know what to do with, please consider donating it today to help people who could really use it!

once again, here's the page i set up to gather donations from the online community:

Australian Disaster Support

Most notable of such destructive forces have been:

- The recent Queensland floods, submerging land mass larger then Germany and France combined

- "Cyclone Yasi", having just hit in early (3rd) February, the biggest cyclone to EVER hit Australian soil, and at the time it hit, was of the same category of power as hurricane Katrina

- Fires raging on east and west coasts of the continent, relentlessly destroying homes and towns in their paths

If every member of Newgrounds donated $1, that alone would rebuild entire houses, perhaps even farms. Imagine what a little from everyone can do to help recover!

100% of funds raised will be donated to supporting the relief efforts in Australia, NONE of your money will go astray, and i assure you, will be received with grateful hearts and hands. Help out a country that has provided Newgrounds with talent like Adam Phillips, Hania and James Lee, Sexual-Lobster, Master Samus, Rubber Ninja, MasterAardvark and TheBoogley and many more!

and so, I say in the spirit of us Australians:
"where the bloody hell are ya?!"

A chance to help out!


In our thoughts! You will pull through this. Your all tough as nails!

..0-0 YAY ME!!

It really seems the apocolypse has started a year early in Australia. I've already donated to the disaster appeal, but it looks like mandatory donations are going to be on the cards for everyone soon enough (not that I have a problem with that).

Also, don't forget Sexual-Lobster.. I love that guys work.

ah thanks, added him :)

Damm some days ago have a disaster in Rio de Janeiro Brazil

Can't no money :(
Also i'm underaged.

The best investment I could do with 20 dollars.

You know, the Aboriginals deliberately allowed some areas to burn to protect other areas. They made sure there was a certain distance between every tree or group of trees to make sure they wouldnt have huge ass forestfires.

And now, tons of white Australians can't fucking handle forestfires, and ask everyone for money and sympathy.
Silly thing to think about.

Australia's a freaking bushfire magnet :(

Sam raises a good point.

America says nay

I donated 10 bucks, although now that I see citricsquid's post I kind of agree with him. I'm sure your not the kind of guy that would lie on here to take money but why not do it directly through the charities?

i don't steal, especially with something like this. That would make me a cold hearted bastard. you have no need to worry, and like i said, the purpose of going through the simple page i set up, is so we can all see how well NG is doing in chipping-in, you all get receipts for your donations and can claim it as donation to charity, and all the funds will go directly to relief

also, thank you kindly for your donation :)

Oh jeeze.

Talk about a merciful Poseidon.

I mean, yeah the properties are all gone but I'm glad the injury, missing, and death toll is surprisingly low considering how large amount of Australia got hit.

Dude, imagine if a cyclone like that hit my island.....oh knock on wood knock on wood! D:

I'm british so if I donate british pounds will they somehow get converted into australian dollars?


I want to live in Australia, i envy you >:C

And why the hell isn't this in the news in the U.S.? You can see my disappointment in U.S. media.

it has been a little bit i think... too busy showing Angelina Jolie picking a new baby maybe?

Oi wtf Jazza! MasterAardvark and TheBoogley aren't on that list of Aussie talent >:(

thanks, noted, added :)

That cyclone was ridiculously scary :/
I'd donate, but uh I was in the cyclone myself, up in Townsville, and we're cleaning up our own place.
Though we weren't hit nearly as hard as Tully and such, I feel for everyone who lost their homes and I urge people to donate, it would really help out people.

Do it yanks

Good idea jazz, this is better than a so called "disaster levy". I would donate but for my inherant lack of funds. My best wishes are with everyone who has been helping out or donating, and of course to those struck by such a cruel disaster.

im a Australian and i thank all you guys for helping out

here here!

If this means no more gamer-Tonight, I say let it burn lol

ooh snap!
