through facebook i found out about a friend of a friend of a friend who lost everything in the floods and she said there was a 2yo boy who lost everything. i did up a care package but he is 4. so rather than take it back to target and change sizes etc i'll make up another one more fitting for a 4yo.

but, do you know of any families with a 2yo that lost everything that i could send it to? would probably be best if he was an only child so other siblings don't miss out.

its a thomas the tank engine back pack with a 2piece short/shirt set, a lightning mcqueen shirt (both size 2), 5pk undies in sz 2-3, matchbox car, thomas brand 'mavis' train, bubbles and books. everytihng is new except the backback which is in like new condition.

i want to give it to someone who i 'know' rather than to a charity dispensing items.

I have a friend that didn't lose everything.....but they did lose their house. It went completely underwater, they have a 2.5 yo boy and a 5 month girl. He is studying and she is on Mat leave, so not in a great financial position (it is my brothers best friend and his family).

They did get some stuff out......so I will leave it with you, I know they would appreciate it, although they are saying all is ok, I think it is all hitting home this week as to what they have been through and the big job ahead.

PM me for their address.

Honestly that is fine. Awful times for all involved.
