Help The Salkeld's Rebuild Their Family Home

Donation protected

Hello, My name is Samantha Dell'Aquila, and I truly appreciate you taking a moment to read this story.
At 3am in the morning on 13th Nov, my incredible future sister in law and her family were blind-sided and lost their treasured family home in Wilberforce NSW to house fire.
Ben, Crystal, Andi and Lacey, as well as Keith (the dog) are all SAFE!
Everything else has been lost in the fire. This has come only a short time after their property went under in the 2021 floods.
Any money donated will be used to secure interim housing, purchase new clothing for Mum, Dad, plus the two girls, and of course, some food for Keith!
Any amount you are willing to contribute is so greatly appreciated, and if you aren't able to contribute any money at this time, a share with your friends and family would mean the world to us all <3 <3 <3

**Thank you to everyone that has donated and shared this page so far! This will help immensely in getting the essentials to try and start a normal life again. As we all know insurance companies take time and never cover anywhere near the cost of what has been lost. This family is without a home, any belongings and nothing for Christmas. This is why I have upped the target to $25,000 to try and get these guys a good chance at starting over. Please help me put some smiles back on their faces! I need to make sure these girls still get a good Christmas and I can’t do it without your help!!!

Thank you again to all that have donated and shared so far, we couldn’t have gotten this far without you!!!! Thank you ❤️❤️❤️
