Padstow Heights Family Help - post fire

This vibrant, loving and gorgeous family need your help.  On Sunday 5th of May their beautiful rented home was destroyed in a fire.  It was a home filled with photos, happy memories, delicious food and noisy kids.  It was also a home that included an extended family:
 - Nerissa and Chris, happily engaged
 - Nerissa's mum, Rose and brother, Daniel
 - Kids CJ (Picnic Point High School student) , Ari (Menai High School student) and Nate (Padstow Heights Public School student)
 - 3 cats
 - 1 bird
 - 1 mouse

Most items were destroyed and they were uninsured.    The house is now inhabitable and so they now need to swiftly find another home to move into - while juggling the demands of working,  and looking after primary and secondary school children.

To make things even more heartbreaking, Nerissa and Chris were excitedly planning their upcoming wedding in July.  Many of their precious wedding items were destroyed and it's unclear if the financial pressure of losing literally everything else will mean that they need to let go of their wedding dream for now.

The money raised for this fundraiser will go directly to Nerissa and Chris for their use towards replacing their lost items, moving into a new house and getting married in June.
