From Madeit With Love

On January 23, Tammy Booer and her family were travelling to Hervey Bay for a camping holiday when their car was hit by another car travelling the wrong direction on the dual carriageway near the Nambour-Bli Bli exit at Kulangoor. Tammy and her husband, Nathan, were trapped in the front seats, but told their children, Zac, aged nine and Lilli, aged five, to get out of the car. After the children had left the car, it was struck by a truck. Tammy and her unborn baby died as a result on 25 January. Nathan is still in a critical but stable condition in hospital. Zac and Lilli received only minor injuries.

Tammy had been a seller on Madeit and Etsy since 2009 - her store, Boorah Designs (now closed, but her Blog and Facebook are still around if you want to investigate), sold children's clothing and accessories.


The Madeit community is running a "From Madeit With Love" fundraising event for the Boorer family.

How does it work? From 8 pm on 13 February until midnight 13 March 2013, there will be handmade items donated by the entire Madeit community available on Madeit with the words madeit with love in the title. Search for these words to find the items. The proceeds from the sale of all of these items will go directly to the Ipswich Presbyterian Church, who will be assisting the Boorer Family.

Alternatively you can make a donation directly to the family using the following direct debit details:
