Proud to be an Australian

It’s time like these when the world is in need, that Australia’s often-cited culture of generosity is once again proven. The latest figures I can access from the World Vision site list donations for the Reach Out to Asia appeal as totally $12.3 million. By the end of the month, the expected total will be about $20 million – more than $1 for every Australian citizen on the planet, and that’s just from this particular appeal.

As so many have said before, such generosity makes you proud to be Australian. But I think more than anything else, Australians who are giving to the tsunami victims are just proud to be able to help.
