Q: What is the $2 Donation for?
A: Recently I had the privilege of meeting an amazing man called Nick Duggan and his wonderful family. Nick is a local businessman on the Sunshine Coast and is currently suffering from a disease (Coccidioidomycosis Meningitis) that Australian doctors cannot treat and his Health Insurance will not cover. This donation is to assist him and his family.
Nick and his family have lost their business, their cars and their home. But their family unit and will to live remains strong. With no assets and the insurance companies denying financial support Nick is relying on the kindness of friends, family and complete strangers to help fund his trip to the US to receive the only medical treatment available for this condition, and the only opportunity left to try and save his life.
I have been truly inspired by this families story and am sharing this with you as I think it needs to be shared. Normally I would not put this sort of information out there but I am personally doing whatever needs to be done to help Nick and his family. Starting today Get Wines Direct will be adding to each order the opportunity to choose whether or not you would like to assist with a $2 gift donation to raise money for Nick Duggan's medical expenses. If you don't wish to donate simply choose this option when placing your order online. The option for the $2 gift donations are available with online orders or let our call centre staff know you'd like to give $2 when you phone orders through.

On behalf of the Duggan family I thank you and hope that together we can help get Nick well again before time runs out.
