For today's Tuesday's Treasures I thought I would pay homage to the Mud Army and all other volunteers that have helped all the communities that have been affected by the Queensland Floods.
These people have spent days helping others who have lost everything and just didn't know where to start cleaning up.
It was great to see parents taking their children out to help, passing on the Australian Community Spirit of helping others in need.
It was really good to see so many young adults helping. They get so much negative press but in this crisis were out in force helping, forgoing their weekend of fun, to help all across SE Qld.
I got the 2 photos above from the Ourbrisbane website.
The people from Bakedrelief have been a godsend to the victims and volunteers arriving with food to fill their bellies to keep them going for long hours. It has meant that these people didn't need to stop cleaning up to find food, they could just keep working.
Thankyou Daniella for this great service.

It really makes me so proud to be an Australian.
My cousin has summed up how all the victims feel when he texted this message to everyone who has helped him.
"Thankyou all so much for your support - food drops, cleaning up or somebody I could just talk to. Your friendship, words of comfort, effort meant so much in this time of need."
