Dig Deep and Donate - Queensland Government Flood Relief Appeal
Beginning in December, 2010 and only now beginning to recede, a series of floods are wreaking havoc across large parts of Queensland; including Toowoomba, Daly, Brisbane and almost 70 other regional towns. Estimates of the number of people affected by the floods are in the hundreds of thousands, including many missing or confirmed to have lost their lives.
Kestral has employees, clients and business colleagues in Queensland and our thoughts go out to them, their families and their staff in this unfathomably trying time. With the tragic loss of lives and the destruction of homes and businesses, the cost to rebuild these ravaged cities and towns will be in the billions.
Australians are known for their exceptional generosity and willingness to help out in a time of crisis. As a proud Australian company, Kestral has donated to the Queensland Government Flood Relief Appeal. Staff have themselves dug deep to also contribute to the fund and we would urge all of our partner companies and competitors to do the same - every little bit helps. Donations can be made to the Flood Relief Appeal online, by phone and via direct transfer.
On behalf of the staff and management of Kestral, we would like to send our hopes and wishes for a quick revitalisation of the great state of Queensland and a return to 'business as usual' as soon as humanly possible. Our sincere condolences to those who have lost loved ones in this horrendous natural disaster.
