For the three ladies of Tie Up the Black Dog Committee, life has been turned on its head in the past 24 hours! We’re in our mid-60’s and our experience with social media is reasonably limited, less so with crowd funding sites.

But what a joyous result–Edwina, whom I’ve never met, has obviously exercised her enormous passion in SUCH a positive way. And who would ever have dreamt of the tidal wave of support for the work we do???

We thank her for thinking of others, and for being prepared to provide us with the wherewithal to take some positive messages of hope to people in the outback, who are doing it SO tough–we went to Longreach/Winton last winter (2014) with two events and things were SO desolate then….nothing’s changed. We pray that the people of every drought-affected district will stay strong…stick together and support each other.

We sincerely thank each of you who has contributed via the Ozcrowd Tie Up the Black Dog site…….we will honour your donation with some hard work and some good results.
