Squatters Destroyed Hannas Home

My name is Jason and I'm raising money to help my girlfriend Hanna fix up her first home, which was destroyed by squatters while we were overseas. Hanna spent a lot of time and money to get her home looking perfect before we went away and it was destroyed by several drug addicts who decided to move in for two weeks and make themselves at home. Every single room was spray painted, glue was spread all over the walls, holes punched in the walls and doors, doors ripped off the hinges, vanity and wardrobes spray painted, they flooded the carpet and spread filth in every single corner of the house. It was the most horrific mess I have ever seen - I don't know how this amount of carnage can occur in such a short period. We forced them out last night with the help of Tas Police. There was 7 people occupying the premises and sadly a 1 year old child was present. A fire was burning dirty nappies and rubbish that they had accumulated. The police found drugs, weapons of interest, stolen goods and stolen car keys. In the time we were away they terrorised the lovely community of Blackstone Heights. Our poor neighbours were robbed and a taxi driver got held up with a hammer and had to hand over money. Hanna is a pretty resilient 21 year old, but this has taken its toll on her after all the effort she had put in to get it looking nice. These animals took what is not theirs, they need to be dealt with in the right way, but more importantly I want to get my partners house back to the way it was. The cost to fix the damage caused is roughly 10 thousand dollars. We have insurance, but there is a 5 thousand dollar excess, which we can't afford. I don't want her to have to look at this damage for as long as it will take for us to get the funds together - she doesn't deserve that after already dealing with so much. I am looking to raise $5,000 to get Hanna's first home back to its original condition - any help would be really appreciated! Thanks,Jason
