Queensland Flood Appeal Auction

As I sit here in my dry home on dry land, I am watching and listening with horror of the devastation that is happening, due to flooding,to Queensland and now the northern part of my state NSW.
My daughter, son in law (SIL), and 2 small grandchildren live in Toowoomba where the giant 8 metre tsunami wave hit without warning. Luckily my daughter and grandchildren where home in a higher part of the city, but my SIL, who is a tow truck driver was actually on a call out, assisting a lady who's car had stalled in the CBD (Central Business District), when it struck. He managed to keep out of harms way and was sending photos via iPhone to my daughter and me long before it made the national news. Thankfully, after many hours, he arrived home safely.
The trouble now is lack of food, fuel and staples of life as the shops and supermarkets are all empty, due to panic buying.

Anyhow, with saying that, I am happy to join Make it Perfect's Toni's QLD Flood Appeal Auctions, I am auctioning a set of my HERB SPOON MARKERS, and ALL the money will go towards the Premier's Disaster Relief Appeal.

Ok. This is how it works:

bidding for the set of 5 Herb Spoon Markers They aren't being
auctioned separately.

DIRECTLY into the Premier's Flood Relief Appeal Fund.
