Family car caught fire

Friday night my mum was driving her car along the highway on her way to visit my sister for her baby shower and my daughter for her birthday when she was alerted by another car passing her by beeping and yelling that her car was on fire. She quickly pulled over and everyone dived out minutes before it exploded completely engulfing it in flames leaving them no time to get anything out but themselves, a nappy bag and a phone. Mum had taken the car to her local mechanics that afternoon to check that it was safe to make the trip and he assured her it would be fine. This was the only car my parents had and as a large family it was needed several times a day to drive my stepdad to work, brothers and sisters to & from school and everywhere else they needed to go. 
My 2 month old nephew was also in the car who has now lost almost everything he owns because it was all packed for their holiday.
I'm hoping we will be able to raise some money to help get them back onto their feet and ease some of the devastation this has caused. If you're able to donate anything at all would be so greatly appreciated and would be going towards helping the family get a new car that they desperately need.
