Victorian Bushfires - ways to help with books

There would be few readers of this blog who would not be aware of the devastating bushfires in Victoria.  The initial need is always money - the Red Cross appeal is here.

 Here are a couple of bookish ways to help:

Borders are taking donations of good second hand or new books and will match the retail price to $200,000.  Read more here.

Dancing with Frogs is collecting books for a keen reader called Jarryd, a boy whose extensive library was entirely lost in the fires.  Check the list here, or read how to donate a voucher to him.

Handmade Help is a Melbourne-based blog co-ordinating (and publicising) all sorts of ways to help.
