Australia's devastating bushfires have brutalised the small town of Mallacoota, in south-eastern Victoria and on NYE destroyed Justin's home.
Thank you so much to everyone who has reached out and offered help and support for Justin. He has been truly overwhelmed with the love and kindness and it means a lot to him at this time. I know I am only one of many who value the selfless, kind, funny, talented and generous individual he is.
There are many people who know the town of Mallacoota and what a special place it is and have been asking about wildlife and how the wider community is going up there. Some of you are frustrated that you can't come at this time and help personally. There's a lot to be done. It's only the beginning. I have included links for donations for that reason. A lot of you also may have been affected by the fires or have friends or family in similar situations. We are thinking of you all and hope you are getting the support you need at this time too. I think it's fair to say we have seen some of the best of Australian mateship in recent months.
Once again, thank you everyone from the bottom of our hearts for looking after our special friend Justin and the wonderful people and wildlife that make up Mallacoota.
Peace & love, Suzie Wells
