dont forget that quite a few Woolworths stores Australia wide will match dollar for dollar any donations made at any Woolworths supermarket, BIG W or Dick Smith until this Thursday. An excellent way to stretch your donation that little bit further.

That's fine, Flower;
lots of members will have done so already.

My suggestion is suggesting a way to do more with little effort, that is easily achievable - at least by those of us who regularly achieve successful trades.

Kind of a "Tradeathon".

I hope I can elicit a few positive responses.

For those of us in the West, where it is hot and dry, to hear the overnight news from Queensland makes one ask, apart from money, "What can we do to help"---the short answer is practically nothing except pray, but the time will come when this battered community will require masses of practical assistance, let's make sure those of us who are in position to contribute,--- do just that.

Too right, Flower;
this is one suggestion I support you 100%. With our trading skills and successes: Aren't we in a good position to help? Regardless where we live, we can band together and chip in.

In fact, already did: in the JBH thread, where barra joined me immediately.

This is my suggestion:
Everybody pick one particular "typical" trade, follow it from Buy to Sell - make sure it turns a profit cool.gif ,
and donate the profit to the Premier's Relief Appeal.

Like Barra's, my ball has already been rolling last week:

Confirmed with ATO
That a SMSF can make a donation so you can realize the gain then claim the donation as an expense.

Any copycats out there? What are you waiting for?

It won't cost you anything, except a little planning and time; you're no worse off than if you hadn't taken that trade. And it won't even cost you a cent CGT.

I am not a fan of Anna Bligh however I agree that she is doing great job in this crisis and does have the look of being in charge unlike our PM.

There are so many good stories of people helping others in these troubled times that makes us proud to be Aussies and then there are other stories that make me sick and totally disgusted such as looting, I was told of a certian fellow in Marybrough who had bought crates of milk before it ran out and was reselling it on the street side for seven dollars per 2lt bottle.

G'day, that's close to what my wife & I said last night. Bligh seems sincere whereas Gillard appears to be performing.

Hi Kelpie--I studiously avoided exactly what you have just said, and I'm further to the right than Ghengis Khan!

Anna Bligh would make a FABULOUS Prime Minister of this wonderful country---but were stuck with you know who--for the time being only hopefully.

Just as an aside the flood disaster is prime time live TV in England-- comments returning here on the two personalities are revealing to say the least!

I'll take a punt, one has a legal background (the one that initiates triple speak) and the other does not have a legal background.
