Our Internet Secrets Community Donates $56,052 To Premier’s Flood Appeal

Posted on: February 9th, 2011 by Julie Lewin No Comments

Queensland is now in the recovery phase of its worst flood in 100 years.

This is what happened to Wivenhoe Dam …

This water needed to be released fast to make room for the catchment waters to come in. Thousands of homes in Ipswich and Brisbane were flooded. They thought this would never happen again after the 1974 floods.

Driving Through Grantham and Withcott

Today, I went by bus through Grantham and Withcott.

On approaching Grantham … we drove into a wall of dread and trauma.

Driving through this proud town was very eerie. I felt very sad as I looked from building to building … none of them were spared.

People from all over the world have donated money to help Queensland rebuild and the Our Internet Secrets community has dug deep.

Yesterday, Andrew and Daryl Grant, founders of Our Internet Secrets, were very proud to present Peta-Kaye Croft, Member for Broadwater, a cheque for $56,052 for the Premier’s appeal from the Our Internet Secrets community.

When Queensland was inundated with water, Andrew and Daryl asked their friends to help raise $50,000 for the Premier’s Flood Appeal.

Yyyaaayyyy … and thank you to you … they are delighted to have exceeded this target … and its still rising. The Our Internet Secrets community in the top 20% of businesses who have donated over $50,000 to the appeal.

Peta-Kaye graciously accepted the cheque on behalf of the Premier, Anna Bligh, and shared with the Our Internet Secrets community how their contribution will be helping Queensland recover.
