*Public donations to Victoria’s bushfire disaster top $30 million in two days
PUBLIC donations for bushfire victims have topped $30 million in just two days in an unprecedented outpouring of generosity and community spirit.
“It is incredible.”
“It’s never happened like this before.
“It surpasses everything, the tsunami, Cyclone Tracy.”
The Victorian Bushfire Fund was set up only yesterday by the Australian Red Cross and the Federal Government.
The death toll from Victoria’s fires has risen to 173, with 26 fires still burning across the state.
