The ‘heartwarming’ 72-hour community outpouring for Kelly Wilkinson’s kids
The guardians of Kelly Wilkinson’s three young children will now have a home large enough to raise the family, after a flood of community donations.
The three children are now living with their aunt and uncle, and their five children.
Tamika Smith, who has a background in construction, led the callout, which saw more than 250 contractors put their hands up to contribute to constructing a home.
“The incredible thing about what’s happened in the last 72 hours is just seeing an industry of 90 per cent men that have contacted me directly,” Ms Smith told Neil Breen.
Within 24 hours, Ms Smith was able to secure a builder, and a block of land in 48 hours.
“I hounded every developer I know.
“It’s been incredibly heartwarming for everyone involved.”
