YOUR STORY: MY name is Jess & I have created this fundraiser for one of the most caring people I know.
A very close friend of mine Brodie Wickham and her three gorgeous children.
This family has been through more than enough and they need your help!!!
Earlier this year they lost their home in cyclone Marcia and now have been dealt with another cruel blow.
Due to a tragic workplace accident, these three beautiful kids Leo, Mel and Cru have lost their daddy.
Brodie has lost her husband/soulmate/lover.
A lot of people in this family are really hurting right now and they need our help to pull through.
With Christmas only a few weeks away, I am asking for anyone to contribute anything they can.
All funds raised will go directly to the family in hopes of bringing some light to their lives after such a cruel and horribly sad loss.
As Brodie describes, Daniel was a "True Aussie Bloke, a decent man with good values."
This family would help anyone in a time of need, so let's band together and support the Wickham family.
