China earthquake appeal
We were all moved by the terrible earthquake in China. The devastating quake claimed more than 80,000 lives and left five million people homeless.
In the village of Beichuan everything was destroyed. As locals try to rebuild their lives We’re asking you to lend a hand to help raise money to build a new school to Australian safety standards.
We need to raise $325,000 to build a school for 500 students. The TODAY Show have donated $1000. You can donate at any branch of the National Australia Bank
Remember every little bit helps and all donations are tax deductable. If you’re a business and you send us your receipt for a donation over $500 we’ll give you a big plug on air.
