Love For Vincent

Fundraising for the family of Vincent, who was injured bushwalking.


"Yesterday, our beautiful friend Clare's vivacious boy Vincent had an awful accident and fell while bushwalking. He was airlifted to Randwick Children's Hospital where he is being treated. We want to offer Clare and Greg access to accommodation nearby while Vincent is in hospital without having to worry about the cost." — Fundraiser organizer

Liv needs lifesaving surgery due to her auto-immune condition.

"After her feeding tube punctured her intestine and she had to undergo surgery, her heart stopped and she nearly died. The only option left for Liv to be able to survive anything is to undergo another surgery and be treated with medication. She needs this surgery to survive. Please donate and share this fundraiser widely - you are helping save a young woman’s life." — Fundraiser organizer

Fundraising for a 17-year-old lesbian Muslim girl to find safe housing.

" "Hi everyone. I am a 17-year-old lesbian in an extremely abusive Muslim household [in a middle eastern country] where I have recently been outed. I am in grave danger as I faced their physical and verbal abuse on a daily basis, even before they knew I was a lesbian. Now that I have been outed, I fear for my life and I cannot stay in this environment any longer."

I'm soliciting for the help of LGBTQ community to assist me with my medical transition and my survival also. . I've been kicked out of the house with my family calling me all sort of names."
