Kelly and Trevor Edwards and their two young daughters moved into their new home at Seaton in Victoria just four weeks ago.
On January 18 they lost everything they owned in an out of control bushfire, evacuating in the early hours of Friday morning with just a small suitcase of clothes and some treasured photos.
Kelly is expecting their third child in July and I thought a short family getaway would help in their long journey of recovery. I would like to acknowledge my appreciation to South Seas Motel for donating accommodation and Magic Mountain for offering family passes.
Thanking them both for their most generous support, it really is true that Aussies help each other during tough times.
