I haven’t heard much in the US news about the fires in Victoria, but I know it’s bad.
I know people down there, though, thankfully, none of them seem to be effected by the bushfires. Still, a lot of people are and the death toll has topped 200. But, I won’t dwell on how bad it is. Instead, I’d rather point out some folks trying to help.
This is mainly for the techies and comes to me via ProBlogger. SitePoint, who publishes really interesting web design books, among other things, has their headquarters in Melbourne, the capital city of Victoria. In their effort to help out their neighbors, they’ve got a special deal going on their eBooks. Now, through Friday, Australian time, SitePoint is offering five books of your choice for the price of one, in PDF format. The proceeds of this will all go to help the Australian Red Cross Victoria Brushfire Appeal. It’s a worthy cause and you get some great books out of the deal, too. So, if you’ve got the cash, it’d be a great way to help out.
Just thought I’d let folks know.
