For those of you wondering what you can do to help the victims of the brushfires in Australia, head over to australia_aid. I created the community as a central location for anyone offering or auctioning something in return for donations. Feel free to browse and bid or buy the items listed or offer something yourself. There is also a post on hpequality with a list of offerings.
I've put up one 5,000 word short story and one landscape painting, since I won't be getting a paycheck for another few weeks and most of that's already going to paying off the money I've had to borrow from my parents recently.
