I would love it if you would read this.

I was just reading Mia Freedman's blog - Mamamia , which I am sure many of you follow.

She just posted about the horrific murders of Nick Waterlow and Chloe Waterlow and most importantly, how we all can practically help this family through this truly terrible terrible time.

Here is the link ;

I didn't know Nick or Chloe personally. I went to Sydney University many years ago when she was first there and I was friends with some of her friends from high school. I probably met her a few times but she wasn't my friend.

I have been thinking about her husband, her children and her brothers constantly since this happened and have wished that there was something I could do to help.

Well it appears there is. Actually, something we could all do.

A trust has been set up for her children and on Mamamia there are the details of how it all works, where the money will go and how to help.

Essentially, in the short term, the money will allow Chloe's husband to be with his children and help them deal with this horrendous situation.

If you have time, I would really appreciate it if you could go to Mia's blog and read her post and if you feel at all inclined, help this family deal with a loss so enormous I can't begin to get my head around it.

Thanks for reading.

It was just an horrendous story wasn't it? I'm still upset by it and had to go straight on-line and donate. Any small donation has to help a little - but gee, it feels so small considering their loss.
