DONATIONS LIST: Give to help locals rebuild after floods

ABOVE: Savannah and her children need help to rebuild.

Here’s a list of places where you can donate money to help people rebuild after the floods.

We are keeping the list as local as possible and focused on the Richmond Valley and Kyogle LGAs.

The list is only a start and if you send an email to we will add further local charities and individual crowdfunders.

We’ll share this list on Facebook and on Twitter to reach an audience beyond our local patch.

Every dollar helps so whether you can give a little or a lot, know that your donation is going direct to the people who need it most.

Broadwater community

This crowdfunder is for the community of Broadwater which had severe flooding in the village.

Initial money raised will support the establishment of a community hub to facilitate clean-up efforts with fuel and pressure cleaners. Once this goal is reached, any additional money raised will be distributed to residents to fund household requirements via vouchers for electrical stores for goods such as fridges, bedding, washing machines.

Go here to help them out.

Evans Head, Woodburn, Broadwater and Coraki

Lyndall Murray is organising this fundraiser.

“I’ve had friends camping on the Woodburn bridge overnight who are scared, and they’ve lost everything. This story is not unique and there is so much suffering,” Lyndall said.

“This go-fund me is to help those most vulnerable who have no insurance and need a helping hand to get back on their feet.”

Individual crowdfunders


Elderly couple

Christopher Duce has organised this fundraiser for his parents in their 70s and 80s who lost their home and possessions in Coraki.

“Ten years ago, they lost the home my father built in a fire,” Chris said.

Donate here.


Pensioners Linda Barney-Dowdall and Bob Dowdall escaped their flooded Coraki home . Bronwyn Carmichael has set up a fundraiser for them here.


Saving others

On February 27, Arrow spent the day helping save Lismore locals from raging flood waters. Coming home to Woodburn late that afternoon, exhausted, he realised the impending threat upon the family home between Woodburn and Evans Head.

Arrow and Savannah moved all their valuables high up, the waters rose much high than anyone expected and reached well above their second floor. They have lost everything.

As the waters began to rise around their home, their only hope for survival with their three young children was to climb into their boat with the clothes on their back, a backpack each for their kids and their phones.

Arrows business is Arrows Fishing Charters. He has lost countless dollars worth of fishing reels, rods, and supplies.

Savannah is a local childcarer and is known by many in the Woodburn & Evans Head community.

Donate to the family here.


Robert May from Woodburn was rescued by two men in a tinnie and his granddaughter set up a fundraiser for him to re-establish his home.

Flooded home

Mia and Vicky had just renovated their Woodburn home when it was flooded. Their daughter has set up this fundraiser for them.


Helping others

dirtgirlworld creators Cate McQuillen and Hewey Eustace from Bungawalbin have helped their community so much that friend Jenny Lalor set up this fundraiser for them.


Renovated home

Chyanne Everingham has organised a fundraiser for her family who recently returned to their newly purchased property in Broadwater.

“They have devastatingly found the downstairs part of their home needs to be gutted entirely and almost rebuilt again apart from the structure of the building in place already. The ceiling has completely collapsed, the wall coverings have completely caved in, and all furnishings have been damaged,” Chyanne said.

Go here to donate.

Contents and cars

Rebecca Ballard is fund-raising for her in-laws who lost the contents of their Broadwater home, multiple cars and on top of that their business equipment in the flood that has devastated so many communities.

“Luckily they made it to Evans Head without injuries and they were able to stay at a hotel where they had somewhere dry to rest their heads while the flood levels went down,” Bec said
