Hi backyard blitz, im writing because i would like to help pay my mum back. 2 years ago, i was diagnosed with kidney disease, i was put straight onto dialysis. It was then later discovered that i had tumors on my kidneys, so i under went chemotherapy, the tumors came back twice but now gone. Ive just suffered from a heart attack on top of the kidney problems. My mother is amazing woman, she works full time, whilst helping and looking after me, trying to pay my medical bills plus look after herself, as she has her own medical problems., i also have a sister and brother that she tries to keep up with as well. She is always helping others but never does anything for herself. She has a bathroom and kitchen that really need a makeover and a backyard that needs some love but she just hasn't the time or money to do anything. My mum has sacrificed so much for me and still does, she deserves something nice to happen/ or go her way. i would love to be able do something to say a small thank you to her. i would be so grateful if you guys could help at all. thank you very much :)

Hello we live in a small mining town in wickham Western Australia . We have lived here all our lives and my partner got made redundant a couple of weeks ago it was heart wrenching due to the iron ore price and there is little if any housing so we have been offered a shed to do up and we only have 2 months to move in . My partner is unwell and can not do all the Reno,s to this shed inside and out . It would be great if you guys could help in anyway to make this our new home as best as we can make it regards

Hi blitz team!!
I'm currently a teacher at local community preschool in the rural town of Casino. Over the past two years the preschool has been trying achieve the children's dream of turning our desolate 'big' playground into a natural learning environment to enhance and promote children's learning. Our playground currently has two garden sheds and a sandpit, not the type of inspiring playground families and the community would hope for to promote children's learning and well being. Being a community preschool we have lots of willing volunteers to help build the garden but do not have the funds. The children have shared their ideas of what they would like in the garden (including a caravan). This encourage dramatic play.
A garden would not only promote children's learning at our centre but would provide a sensory garden that other centres in the community would be able to access.Please help make the children's dream learning environment become a reality!!!

Hi, I have to face it , my backyard is ***. I have a dirty big hole that used to be an in ground pool .Fence falling down and my Houdini dog finds a way out no matter how many sleepers or bricks etc ,I put in her way. And my wood shed is disastrous .Mate one look at my backyard and you will say ***.... Anyway am taking the wife away in June for 50th birthday, its a Europe holiday we have had in the planning for 10 years.
What a great birthday surprise it would be if you guys appeared to fix what I cant. I am hopeless at building, you only need to see my makeshift fence to keep the dog in and you"ll see. Thinking along the lines deck over pool, with roof, for my outdoor kitchen which is 3 years old and still in boxes, would give the 5 grandchildren somewhere to play when they come over instead of throwing stones in my driveway for entertainment. New fence ,keep the dog in, and turn the dredded wood shed into a workshop, where I can use my many tools still unopened and out of warranty now after many years. Maybe then I could learn to use them...lol.
This is about giving my wife something shes never had, an entertaining area for her 50th birthday, I want it to be a surprise so when we arrive back home she walks into it
the tears would would all be worth it
HELLLLPPPPP:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Hi there. I was hoping to get some help for my ageing parents and their old tiny house. My dad has been disabled since I was about 5 due to a workplace accident. My mum is his full time carer. After raising 5 children and going through her own health issues my mum is struggling to keep up with the house work. The tiny house has way too much clutter and needs a serious make over. My dads medical problems have recently got worse and we dont know how much longer we have with him. We want to change a few things in the house to make it easier for my dad to get around. My mum really deserves a nicely renovated house after all these years of giving. I cant do this on my own... please help
Kind regards
a concerned daughter!

I guys I've been a carer for 30 years for my Aunt who passed away last year, my intellectually handicapped brother 24 who sadly passed away 4 years and to my step father 56 who died in April this year. I moved my mum who is 67 who is palliative dialysis 3 days a week, riddled with osteo and rheumatoid arthritis weak heart , lung condition, bed bound into our home so we can close to her look after and make her comfortable. We never have time to enjoy our backyard and I want to have several get together parties for my mum and my backyard looks outdated. So I hope you respond

6 months ago I married my husband, and construction had commenced on our house. Two days after our wedding, my hubby was hospitalized, his kidney transplant of 9 yrs was going into rejection, before the end of that week his employer told him he no longer had a job and recommended the disability pension,,,nice hey! Prognosis isnt good and we will need to find him another kidney in the not to long distant future. Less than a month ago we moved into our house, hubby has been in and out of hospital for the last 6 months, fortunately I am working, but there is no way we can afford to do anything to the backyard as I dont earn alot. If backyard blits could help us stop the shift sands of the Sahara from moving around our backyard, not only would be we so appreciative, but it would take some of the pressure away from us

I have a friend I did nursing with in the 70's, she is nearly 84 years old and has been nursing her whole life and still is - full time. She has 5 children, 25 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren and has dedicated her entire life to others, for nothing, not once receiving the praise, support and thanks that she deserves. Wow 83 1/2yrs old and still nursing. She has done stuff to her cramped front and back yard, but I feel she is deserving of this.
