Just wanting to share an account of our first 4 days in Coraki. We love that little town. They're in our hearts & minds daily.
Georgie's great, great, great grandparents are buried in the cemetery there. Originally coming from Germany and settling on Duke St in 1860. They went there to work in the timber industry and used to float the logs down the river to Ballina. A paddle steam boat used to mosey along the river and deliver groceries to all the farmer homes. So many stories swept away by these floods.
We are calling out for help for our Aussie Brothers and Sisters. Many have uninhabitable homes which are unsafe, unsanitary and toxic to now live in.
We are asking for anyone who has a caravan or shipping container they would be willing to donate, buy or lend to a family or elderly person in need.
We would love to create this Compassionate Caravans movement, film it, document it, share the shit out of it around the globe. Let's see how many new homes we can establish for these beautiful souls.
It is a time for aussies to stang together again, get your feet on the ground in Gympie or nothern NSW and lend a hand and a shoulder to cry on, a hand to hold, to heal hearts and minds.
If you wish to contact Ben or I about volunteering down there or in other ways you can help, please email or call FreshBox. We are more than happy to chat.
It is time for all of us to come together as humanity and heal the divide in Australia
Aussie Aussie Aussie!!!
