We also believe there might be buried treasure.

Forgot to mention the school I work at has a great eco centre near the Murray Mouth, they propagate local natives. The lady who runs it is a gem- I'm sure she'd love to chat to you guys.

Hi guys,

I live in best friends little beach shack, it's a fibro with no insulation and it's bloody cold in winter.

It's on a 1000m2 block with the most incredible crop of apple, pear, nectarine, peaches, grapes etc.

Every time the wind blows a new part of our fence falls down, we border on 6 properties so we are slowly making our way around (2 down and 4 to go).
There are also two small sheds/spider colonies and a magnificent Hills Hoist.

My Labrador loves to find new and unusual ways to get out of the yard; over, under, through etc. He always manages to find his way back to the front step where he waits for me to come home from work.

There are probably more deserving people but this place has loads of potential and could really use some love!

We have access to plenty of able bodied helpers, just need some inspiration/direction.

I would like you to consider assisting two friends of mine, they share a house , the have crossed the hardest gap in life brain tumours the first friend having three surgery's in different years and then proton radiation , the second friend a brain tumour in 2004, surgery then proton radiation in 2006, now they have had a pituitary collapse because of the radiation that saved their lives , so they are struggling tiredness, they are both 1 in 10 million for their type of tumours and both have survived more than 10 years but with complications. I would love to see these two people assisted , they have given to their jobs the 1st to child care and the second to homeless. they are a credit I ask my friend what it was like to be told and give with yearly MRI's and Endrocologist appointments wondering if it will win.
She said at first I was afraid, then I stopped " I then realised it was like being on a ledge over looking the blue mountains, straight down and you know you will fall one day. You look up and out of reach is your family , they cant help you, they are trying but cant make a difference to what is going to happen, but they love you. then instead of looking down you look outward and see the is a beautiful view, it has love and laughter and you should live life, love life and love each other because they people around you are the most important thing in the world , not the money , the bills or any other problems you think you have.

If you want well deserving recipients then please do not go past the most inspiring woman I know ... My wife Vanessa. An honest hard working Australian who has given to everyone else all her life through her appeal and foundation work. An amazing mother of 4, a beautiful inspiring wife and an incredible woman. If only someone could give something back to her. She has her own battles at the minute and a surprise like this would be incredible. T#unsungaustralianhero #soproudofmy wife

Long shot but, I'm hoping to win for my parents. My mum is the hardest worker, she's a nurse in oncology; works day and night with cancer patients, caring for them and with only 4 hours sleep a night she still has energy to be the most beautiful and kind soul you'll ever meet. Even despite the racial slurs patients throw at her. My dad has just been diagnosed with cancer, so mum, after long hours looking after cancer patients in hospital, now comes home to look after my dad too. Just as we were about to leave for a cruise that we all saved up super super hard for (technically we couldn't afford it, but my parents haven't been on holidays for many years), the doctor called the night before departure and told us my dad can't go; he needs chemo ASAP. Ontop of this, the cruise refused to give us a refund and the insurance won't give us anything either, thousands lost. So, being in the financial situation, my dad, with his cancer, is back to work fuelling aircraft. He is too weak to continue projects at home, and I am working everyday to try and help give them a hand but as a 21 y/o casual worker, working two jobs with a $60,000 student debt, it's difficult. And mum, having to deal with all just wants to come home to a nice home; before cancer my dad sparked up many ideas, that now he won't be able to finish. They even hired trades to come help, and we have continually been ripped off for thousands of dollars; they can see how kind and vulnerable my parents are. One tradie dug up half our yard and then left without finishing the levelling.
I'm a bit desperate to give them something back. They've worked so ridiculously hard, especially with caring for me, having had depression and anorexia too. They just... Deserve everything and I know this would mean the best.
