Help A Grandmother Strike It Lucky Again

Eva Donlon, 82, was the deliberate targeted of a home invasion that occurred at the Woodcroft Caravan Park in South Australia on Tuesday, August 20, 2019.

Two intruders posing as tradesman held the grandmother down and put a hand over her mouth while they stole the $6500 that Ms. Donlon had recently won, as well as other money that she had saved to pay her caravan park fees.

Bravely, Ms. Donlon made the decision to fight back against the cowardly men and used a heavy leather shoe to hit the man that was holding her down, before grabbing ahold of his thumb and bending it backward in an attempt to break free - but unfortunately, it was enough.

Ms. Donlon's attackers have not yet been found, and now, this poor woman who thought that she had struck it lucky is actually a lot worse-off financially then she was before. 

We would like to raise $8,000 to cover the cost of everything that Ms. Donlan has lost, and hopefully, restore some good faith in an older person who was taken advantage of.

Please help us, help her.
