For our friend Kerrie

One of my best Scrap designer friend Kerrie Mandogscrap, is living hard times. Her 17 years soulmate, Gary, just passed away after only 15 days since they know is has massive cancer. They just have time to mary. A funny story Kerrie said : on the way to Dr on the wed, she said “maybe we should get married” - Gary replied “don't think so”, as he always did. When they left the Dr, he said “Better go to the courthouse and see what we have to do to get married”.

Kerrie would never ask for help. They live on 40 acres of bush in a caravan and were slowly building a house. gary had a bike accident some years ago and nearly died and so they relied on pensions and live simply. He did not have insurance, just accident insurance and no funeral insurance. I know it is going to be a huge struggle for her financially, as well as mentally and physically as they have no savings and her income will be cut drastically.

A friend has started an account for donations for a funeral.

We immediately began a group with designers to make a donation collaborative kit for Kerrie, and we are now 79 designers !! The palette is gorgeous and smeel good Australia :
