A visit to the Philippines with Buckets for Jesus founder Ruby Soh in January prompted her to organise a monster garage sale on April 5 to 6, at 45 Randell Crescent.

The two women saw the country’s typhoon and earthquake devastation first-hand, visiting small villages to hand out donated clothing, food and water.

Mrs Laundy hopes to raise $10,000 from the garage sale ” her third for victims of natural disasters ” to help build sustainable homes and for water and rice.

‘I came back from the Philippines aware that I had to generate some money to help the people there,’ she said.

‘A sustainable house costs $2000 so, if we raise $10,000, they can build five.’

Friends, neighbours and fellow St Simon Peter Catholic Church parishioners have filled the family garage with saleable items but there is room for more.

To donate clean, good-quality goods, to help with selling or co-ordinate sales, call Margaret on 0408 689 873.
