Help a local farmer who lost it all

33721742_1539474150243698_r.jpegMy father in law Steve is the most hardworking person I know, he is 56 and works 7 days a week just to make a living. On Thursday the 11th of October a massive storm bought a disastrous tornado along with hail through his farm that he has been working so hard to make a living. The 70 acres of pineapple crops that had started being harvested the day before and 40 acres of avocados along with lychee trees, mango trees, melons and pumpkins that were all months away from being ready to harvest have been completely wiped out. These crops would have been the best crops that they would have had in 20 years and he has now lost over $100,000 worth of produce.
Steve is getting married in 2 months and the produce that they were harvesting these next couple of weeks were going to be providing them with the day they have worked so hard towards and sadly this storm has taken everything from them including damage to their own house. 
Unfortunately he did not have crop insurance as the town of maryborough has not had a storm this big or destructive since 1992.
I am asking for your help with donations to help ease the pain of losing so much of his livelihood and help with the costs of rebuilding everything they have worked so hard for. These crops took years to get to the point they were at and now having to put a lot of hours into cleaning up the destruction and starting all over again. Any help is greatly appreciated and will not go unnoticed. Thank you!
