Two single mothers tragically lose everything

Hi, i am raising money to help two amazing sisters and there three children rebuild there lives after losing everything apart from the clothes they were wearing.

In the early hours of Wednesday 28th July they woke up to their family home totally engulfed in flames with only a few minutes to safely get everyone out of the house.

Thankfully the family is alive and safe but now these two single parents have no roof over there heads and have lost absolutely everything they owned and due to asbestos fibres cant even return to the house to see if anything survived the fire. 

The hardest part of this tragic incident is to find out the fire was deliberately lit by someone and why they would want to do it to such a caring loving family.

Kristy the youngest sister is a devoted mother to a two year old daughter who is just the most beautiful character that can light up a room with her presence.
Kristy also recently became the legal guardian of Sarah's daughters best friend who was going through some tough times of her own and needed a place to live and call home, It just shows how caring and willing theses two sisters are to help others any way they can.


The oldest sister Sarah is truly a remarkable women she is always willing to help anyone around her anyway she can she is a caring and incredibly strong person devoted to her family and friends and any person that knows her would have at one time or another been blessed by her helping nature.


If it wasn't for Sarah i wouldn't be here today writing this, 3 months go i had reached a point in my life where i couldn't go on anymore i was so depressed and believed the only answer was to take my own life but Sarah's words to me that day not just helped me like she has always done when ever i have needed, she saved my life and for that i can never repay her enough she is my best friend, my strength when i am weak, the person that always  has the right answers.

So when Sarah rang me and said  "Chris (Fav) i have lost everything, I don't know what to do, I have no answers...
...This the very reason i'm asking everyone to please help this amazing family get back on there feet and back into a stable living environment again.

I know times are tough at the moment with Covid-19 and any contribution would be much appreciated and the biggest help to a family that is now struggling more than any of us could imagine.   

All money raised will be given to Sarah and Kristy to be spent on setting up a new house for them and the three girls to call home . 
* Bond 
* Months rent 
* Furniture replacement for a house of 5 (Couches, Washing Machine, Fridge,
   Beds, Tvs, Laptops (for both the older girls who are completing VCE currently),
   Kitchen appliances, everything a functioning family needs and had before the
* Clothing - complete outfits for 5 people 
* A new big girl bed for Kristy's 2 year old daughter that was delivered 3 days 
   before the fire that alone was $700 and her daughter is so upset over it on top
   of the trauma of being in a house fire

Every single thing they owned is completely gone and they have to start again from nothing


The quicker we can help this poor loving family the better with all family interstate and unable to help and support them they are currently living apart on friends couch's and spare beds which is no way for a family to live especially with a 2 year old and 2 daughters trying to complete VCE which is hard enough with remote learning.
