Qld Floods with Money
While you are donating funds to the Queensland flood appeals, can I extend an invitation to you to match what you donate here in Australia with giving to an appeal overseas?
Sadly the human bias towards helping the in-group is replicated in our 'Aussie' spirit of giving;
Haiti Earthquake Appeal- Death toll 300,000, 1Million people still Homeless
= $8.1 Million donated by Australians
Queensland Flood Appeal- Death Toll: 17, None reported permanently Homeless
= $ 84 Million donated by Australians as at 15 January 2011
As a student of Philosophy, my keenest areas of interest are Ethics and Bio-Ethics. I strive to live in a reflective manner and to live out my ethical beliefs. You will be able to get a sense of what this means to me from my Blogs.
