Thanks for donating to my Fundraising Page Stirling Family Fundraising.
Together we raised $570,795.00 for Daniel, Jordan and Caleb Stirling.
Everyone involved are extremely grateful for your generous help in raising such a substantial amount.

The story of Sarah Paino has touched the lives of not only the local Tasmanian community but of people living across the country and overseas. In the early hours of January 22 2016 Sarah, who was 32 weeks pregnant, dropped her partner Daniel Stirling, a baker at Banjo's Bakery Cafes, to work. Travelling home with her 2-year-old son Jordan in the back seat she was hit by a stolen vehicle which ran a red light and she lost her life. The young couple’s two-year-old son escaped unharmed and after the amazing work from the team at the Royal Hobart Hospital, their unborn baby, later named Caleb, was safely brought into the world.

Following the tragic event, the team at Banjo’s and MyState Bank both launched fundraising efforts to help support Daniel and his boys. The outpouring from the community was unprecedented and the initial target of ten thousand dollars was quickly surpassed. Within five hours over 30K was reached and by the end of the first week over 370K was raised.

Thanks to the kind support of the media, Sarah’s story has even hit the hearts of people living overseas. Donations, heartfelt letters and gifts for the two young Stirling boys have come in from across the world.

The people of Tasmania have demonstrated that community spirit, love, support and generosity still exists. Banjo’s Bakery Cafes, MyState Bank and many other local businesses have given such profound support by providing donation tins for customers to easily donate and hosting special fundraising events. As for the public, people have been donating anything they can, regardless of their own financial positions, to help the young family. Despite the end of the MyCause online fundraiser, there is without doubt the community will continue to support the Stirling family in any way they can.

The total money raised from all outlets is a staggering $570,795K. We praise everyone who donated in some way or another as you’ve proven that the act of being selfless does exist.

As offers from various sources were coming in to assist Daniel manage this large sum, independent financial advice was sought from KPMG to ensure the funds would be managed in keeping with the sentiment of the generous donors and to provide financial security for the young family into the future. A meeting between Banjo’s, relevant parties involved and Daniel Stirling himself on the 12th February 2016 it was agreed that the funds raised from all parties were transferred and held by the Public Trustee on behalf of Daniel.



Kind Regards,
Banjo's
