Maria German

I’m putting myself in the shoes of people who have had their lives turned upside-down by disasters and taking part in Disaster Weekend. 

On Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 October, for 34 hours I’ll live out of my disaster kit with no electricity, no TV, and no hot meals or showers. I’ll even be sleeping on the floor! 

I’m doing it to raise money for Red Cross so they can keep helping people prepare for, respond to and recover from disasters.

Please donate to my page, I’d be grateful for your support!

Thanks for helping out.

Our emergency kit arrived in the mail. YAY 

We are super excited about taking part in the 
#DisasterWeekend Challenge to assist Red Cross to raise funds to help those affected by disasters such as bushfires and floods.

We are thankful for the generous donations we received so far. 

For Red Cross to be able to help those in need, we need to give them our support. We would love to reach our goal of $500. We really appreciate if you could help us reach our target. :)
