What a terrible time the poor people in Queensland are having with the floods. It is no longer just affecting houses, the water is also up one and two floors in some apartment buildings. We have a really good strata manager and we were supposed to be having our meeting tonight at this building where we have an investment building but it has been cancelled because the manager's home is under water. We are in a large building with over 150 lots and everyone in our building is going to help him clean up as soon as he is able to get back into his house.

We might have some strata issues but at least the majority of us who live in apartments are safe from this disaster. Having fun things in this area is fine but lets also use it as a tool to think tank ways we can help people who have lost their homes.

The timing couldn't be worse with all our holiday rental properties booked for the holidays. If it had happened any other time of the year I would have let people stay in them free of charge. Our kids went down to one of the support shelters and offered some kids around their own age a bed at their place. I am really proud they did that without a nudge from me. It is a holiday apartment and we have two rooms not being used there at the moment with two sets of bunk beds in each room so they managed to grab eight teens and bring them home. I think they are all having a great big party but it has taken the stress off those kids for the next couple of weeks.

I might get our building to have a barbeque of something and send the money up. I know it won't be much but in these circumstances every little bit helps.

Some kids in our building are doing a car wash on the weekend for residents and giving all the money to the premier's flood appeal. Every little bit helps.

I think it is absolutely amazing how everyone has come together to help all those affected by the floods. Well done to everyone who has helped out and the amazing monetary support coming from all over Australia.

The floods in Queensland had almost devastated the town and upon learning of the help that is being given of different people and organizations is a great consolation for the residents to come up and rise from the disaster. I guess residents might turn their head from payday loan in coping up from what they lost and starting for a new beginning. It is really surprising on how the help goes through and I am so much happy to be a part of it.
