On Thursday 11th August, a young Sunshine Coast family lost their home to a devastating fire. Fortunately Slade, Sara and their two year old son Max where not home at the time, but tragically they lost their dog and all their possession to the fire.
Little Max loves teddy bears, and was given the GB Gentle Bear to start off his new collection. A second bear was given to the family for Max’s baby sister, who is due in November.
GB’s Nicki Stevens delivered the bears to the family. “It was really touching to see the community come together to help this family”, said Nicki.
“To see the family lose so much is heart breaking. I was so pleased to be able to give Max the GB Gentle Bear. Although it’s just a small gesture, it’s given Max a new little friend to cuddle and has provided a nice distraction for him during an extremely difficult time for his family”.
