    Sorry about the long post, I will try to be as brief as possible.

    In March this year, I did my first ever Car Rally. Bloody eye opening experience as we travelled through outback NSW and QLD. Got to see some parts of the country I didn’t know existed and really changed my perspective on a lot.

    On one of the nights we stopped in a Town called Tibooburra, a town about 1200 k’s away from Sydney (give or take) We were in the pub that night for dinner and there were some kids there doing fundraising. I thought “why aren’t they getting the people from town to raise money for them?” It’s then I realised there were only 86 people in the whole community (that includes the outlying properties). Bit hard to get blood out of a stone.

    So the kids are raising money for nothing more than to go to an excursion to Sydney. They are going to see the Opera House, Harbour Bridge, Bondi Beach etc. All the stuff a lot of us take for granted. As you can imagine, when you are travelling from BF Idaho, it costs a lot to get them down there, accommodation, meals etc so they have started a Go Fund Me page to raise the money so they can get to go on this trip.

    Did I mention there are only 6 kids at this school???

    What can you do? We can all throw our $25, $50 or $100 in and make little dents “or” we can all throw money together and make one bigger donation form the “OzBoulevard Community”.

    These kids are trying to raise $5,000 and are only at $490 so far so it would be great to get in there and do some good.

    To get things started – I am donating $100

    Secondly – I have a package of parts which I am going to offer the whole package at a bargain price and ALL OF THE MONEY FROM THIS PACKAGE GOES TO THE KIDS.

    Here it is (all OEM 109 parts except the rotors which are aftermarket);

    · 3 x indicators

    · 1 x Stand

    · mirrors.

    · levers

    · rotors

    · spacers (if that's what they are)

    · any other bits I have left

    All of this for $150 for the lot

    Here is the link to the Go Fund Me page. I hope we can get a few people involved
