Our thoughts, hearts and prayers go out to the victims that have lost their loved ones, homes and communities in the devastating bushfires of February 7, 2009.

We have seen the devastation as images through the media, but by no means can we come close to imagining the terror, fear or hurt that has swept through the Victorian communities affected by the hellish fires.

The human spirit has prevailed as we see politicians come together, communities come together and a nation come together to offer support and help.

The boundaries separating the states have been set aside as we try and help our fellow Aussies.

There are many in this bus and coach industry helping ferry fireman to fires and helping move people to shelter.

We take our hats off to all the volunteers and all the donors and simply ask that you reach in and contribute as well.

Below are the contact details for charities that are helping on the ground.

Australian Red Cross - Donate by calling 1800 811 700 or online

Salvation Army - Donate online or phone 13 72 58.
