Meet David and Carrie, and their incredible kids Ella, Jack and Ava.

Their lives have all just changed.

Late on Tuesday the 8th of January 2019 there was a devastating explosion at their home, causing David extreme injuries including severe burns and has left him fighting for life.

They aren’t sure what their future holds now.

David was treated by four ambulance crews, including specialist paramedics, and taken to the Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital where he still remains in a critical condition.

David is the bread winner of the family.

They have been told David is looking at a minimum of 6 months off work and at least 2 of those spent in hospital.

Let’s help make finances one less thing they have to worry about as they face months of hospital visits, rehabilitation and adjusting to whatever their new normal is.

Carrie is such a devoted mother and is a popular instagrammer known for supporting small businesses @wherethewild.ones_are - it would be wonderful to band together and support this family during this traumatic time.

Please help us band together by sharing this fundraiser to reach our goal and help this beautiful family

Hi everyone!

Just a quick update to let you know we have reduced hospital visits to 3-4 days per week now instead of 5.

David has some issues with his hands / joints and has to wear splints to help with that when he can at home which aren’t very comfortable but needed.

He has the dreaded itch now which is keeping us both awake most nights

He tried a couple of hours at work but struggled with the physical demand. So still unsure when he will be able to return to work

Hi everyone,

I would like to thank you all for your kindness and support during this time, your help has been amazing.

David is recovering well, of course some days/weeks are harder than others, but all in all, he is healing well. We still make the trip to the city and back every day (45+ mins each way) for physio, with OT once a week as well and outpatient clinic.

His skin is looking better as time goes on!

We still don’t know when he will be able to return to work, or when our hospital visits will cut back.

With so much thanks,
Carrie xxx

Can we all join in and spread a little love around for our beautiful friends today? You have been so gracious and so kind with your donations already -but if we could all dig deep - every dollar helps on David’s road to recovery!

Let’s let the magic flow! ❤️

Update from Carrie ❤️

Last day of holidays. The last few weeks have flown by, and today was the first full day with all 3 kids again since Dave’s accident.

Thanks to some lovely & generous people, we have seen a movie (#instantfamily was hilarious ), we have had a back to school grocery delivery, a fresh fruit and veg delivery and we have had a couple of quick visitors.

We have also ironed high school uniforms (omg ), named books and done some washing. What a busy day! Lucky for us we finished off with a yummy home-made pie and fresh salad .

Thank you again to all these amazing people for your love and support, you have made life so much easier for us at the moment and for that and everything else, we are grateful!
