Kudos to All Seasons Eco Resort Phillip Island...





All Seasons Eco Resort Phillip Island. The manager of this resort called 3AW just now and he wants to offer his self contained cabins out to families affected by the fires from last week. He has also got together other people from Phillip Island and organised that there be activities for the children, there is a pool, a spa a sauna and tickets to see the penguins. A place away from the fire affected areas, a place for families to try to relax and get some counselling, which he has also organised too. What an awesome idea. Sure, the problems will not go away immediately. It will be a long haul, but at least it will be a place for people to stay, together, and mend together and a place for kids to be kids again. Also, he said, it will be a place for the parents to chill, have a cuppa and enjoy their time there.

My father-in-law, with his local Rotary Club, did something similar last year... I forget the exact circumstances, but they offered a family a cabin with everything provided, a nice break from his personal tragedy - if only I could remember what it was! People really come good in times of crisis :)

What a wonderful idea and it sure beats sleeping in a tent.

It has given me faith in the kindred human spirit to see the amount of generosity and humanity being displayed during this terrible time.

As for the looters, I'm sure there are plenty of people who need target practise who could sit out there waiting for these savage barstards with no morals at all!!

Cazzie, you have been on my mind so much since the news of the terrible bushfires in your area. This is a wonderful thing that Eco Resort is doing. I pray that you will be safe and that it will become contained soon. Hugs.

Stace, your dad is a true Aussie, you must be proud.

Mal, I so agree mate.

Keshi, good onya :)

Karisma, is would beat sleeping in a tent for sure and at least the community could stay together so they could still support each other whenever they need it day or night.

Jules, I could not agree more with you about the looters.

Mom, I so agree.

Ginnie, it is so wonderful human faith all over the World has been shown. Please do not worry about us. We are away from the fires.
