There are now an estimated 14 million people affected, which makes this crisis worse than that of the tsunami of late 2004. Therefore, I'll be keeping the appeal running right up until I begin my week of no internet in order to raise as much money as possible. I will begin my week of no internet on Saturday 21 August (the day of the federal election). Hopefully I'll use my time constructively and make some progress with sewing or fixing up my found table!
What do you think? Should I now aim to raise $1000?
