This has been a tragic summer. In the midst of a relentless drought we are living through the most brutal of bushfire seasons, where lives are being lost, countless homes and properties have been engulfed by flames, cities choked by smoke, and precious animal habitats destroyed, perhaps forever.
Through it all the disaster, we have also witnessed the best of humankind. Our communities have proven to be strong and resilient. Courage and care are evident on every front.
Many owe a debt to the selfless actions of strangers. Here is a chance to say thanks and recognise the contribution of our community heroes.
Many stories have already been told, but there are countless more that deserve to be heard. Please join us in sharing your stories of gratitude, no matter how great or small.
