February 10, 2009, 9:42 PM — By now you've probably heard about the terrible bush fires that are ravaging parts of Victoria, Australia. Over 180 deaths have been reported, and nearly 1,000 homes destroyed. The Australian Red Cross has set up the 2009 Victorian Bushfire Fund to raise money to help those in need.
One way you can help out while helping yourself is to take advantage of a special offer that web development destination SitePoint is running from now until Friday the 13th. Buy five SitePoint books (in PDF format) for the price of one, and SitePoint says it'll donate all proceeds to the Bushfire Fund. Details here.
We're not affiliated with SitePoint (or the Australian Red Cross, for that matter) but it seemed like a good deal for a good cause, so we thought we'd share.
