Im after some advice from you all!
I live in Moree and as you've probably seen in the news we've had a bit of flooding over the past few days. As the cleanuo starts we've found out some friends of ours who have a 4month old have lost everything.
We caught up with them last night for a BBQ and she was in tears for most of it and is obviously very upset. Good news is they think that insurance will cover most of it, but I was wanting to put together a basket of things for them just to cheer them up a little.
Problem is I am completely stuck as to what to include?? They are in a motel atm, so meals and things would be hard because they can't freeze anything.
Maybe like some homemade cake/slice? I cant imagine being in their situation with such a young bubba, and I'm really unsure of anything that might actually make any difference to them!
Any suggestions would be greatly appriciated!

Choccies, cake/slice, nappies and wipes for bub, a little outfit for bub, towels/washers, shampoo/conditioner and soaps, magazines, some make up for her, razor/shaving gel and aftershave for him, perfume... Will keep thinking! Big hugs to them and you for what you're going through - I hate watching the news at night ATM... You are an amazing friend.

Some ideas are: an outfit or two, baby blanket, some magazines for them to read to take their mind off it, a voucher to a shop for things like socks and undies, medicine like panadol or bandaids. Food wise maybe biscuts or muffins something that doesnt need cooking etc. Just a few things I could think of! Think it's a great idea.

Do they have a portacot and pram for bub - could someone lend them one if not? Also maybe a night out to dinner all paid for.

Probably clothes, vouchers for k mart, a fruit basket from a greengrocer, fuel cards so they can free up some money.
