Speaking on the program, (Nine’s telethon) Kevin Rudd said the outpouring of generosity from individuals and companies to those affected made him feel proud to be an Australian. 


“Back on Australia Day I was saying a few things about what the spirit of Australia is all about,” he said.  “It’s about courage, it’s about resilience and it’s about compassion – you know, looking after your mates and looking after your neighbours and people you haven’t actually even met before. 

“And what I see across the response to floods in the north and these terrible fires in the south, are all those great Australian values and virtues on display in a very practical Australian way. ”
