Help rebuild what has been lost in a devastating fire. A family of 6 now left with only what is on their backs and without a home.


Yesterday Friday 11 September 2020 a fire tore through my families home destroying everything in site. Leaving four children and two adults without a home.

The orange brick house with the green roof for 40 years has been known as Uncle Marty's house and the home of his and Becks's whanau. With out fail the front door would be wide open by the crack of dawn welcoming anyone and everyone in who wanted to visit. 10 Kinross Street although it is now lost, will forever be remembered as the safe haven for many people.

For those of you who know Becks know that she has dedicated her life to raising and supporting not only her own children but many more. She is and always will be a mother first. We all know her to be a tough, loud, bad mouthed lady and know that asking for help would be the last thing she would want to do but I know, if the shoe was on the other foot she would be right there supporting that person in need.

This is why I think it is my duty to ask on her behalf so that she can get the support and help that she needs so she can do what she does best... creating a safe place and raising children.

Any donation of any kind would be greatly appreciated to go towards rebuilding what has been lost.

Rebecca Wilson aka Becks is not only the mother to myself and my 4 sisters but has been and still is a mother to many more.

Use of funds

Unfortunately the home is not covered by insurance so any donations will be greatly appreciated and will go towards rebuilding the families lives from clothing, to furniture, to school supplies, etc.
