The donation request is to assist those who are traveling to Walget for the funeral. As the majority of people within Australia would or should know within our Aboriginal culture we support families who are grieving for the loss of their love ones.
The support differs in many ways however the main support we offer is to organise wakes and and pay our last respects by attending funerals. At times it is financially impossible to travel to funerals, this is such an occasion.
So many people contacted TJ's family expressing their sorrow in not being able to attend TJ's funeral because of financial restraints.
It is for this reason and this reason only that the family is requesting donations.
So if you do have any spare funds and would like to donate to this worthy cause than the family of TJ and the Aboriginal community of Walget would greatly appreciate any donations.
Her details are as follows:
Bank: Commonwealth Bank
Branch: Mt Druitt
Branch number (BSB): 062-317
Account no: 000661332
Account name: E G Hickey
On behalf of TJ's family thanks to those who are supporting this cause.
Your support comes in many ways, however the more support we put on our politicians to improve the quality of life for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people the better it will be for us.
NB: If you passed the previous [information] to other email lists then please pass this email on to that same lists.
