Help Darren Flanagan Save His Home

As you’ve all seen from the episode of a current affair we are trying to save our house. Our insurance company is refusing to pay out our profit loss insurance from the summer bushfires that hit the south coast. Any contribution is greatly appreciated and every little bit counts towards us being able to save our family home.
Darren's words: "I lay in bed every night staring at the ceiling thinking, 'how am I going to get out of this?' Because I'm the dad, you know, this is my job to save my family, I just can't win this one. I just don't feel like I can, not without help."
Darren saved Todd and Brant in 2006 in the Beaconsfield mine collapse The hero who rescued two miners in the Beaconsfield mine collapse has now found himself caught in the battle of his life after being struck by a triple whammy of disasters. In 2006, Darren Flanagan spent a week working for up to 29 hours at a time inside a one-metre diameter tunnel using explosives to open a path to trapped miners Todd Russell and Brant Webb.
