This morning on Triple M Breakfast with Basil Zempilas and Xavier Ellis, we couldn't believe the overwhelming generosity of the MMM Perth family who came to the aid of Perth mum Amanda. The Yanchep single mum is struggling to make ends meet and couldn't afford to pay for her daughter's interstate swim carnival. But after a call out on air we managed to more than cover the costs. A beautiful ending.

“I was at a loss and my daughter was selected in the School Sport WA team to go over and compete in Brisbane and I didn’t know how I was going to get her over there.”

With the help of Novotel Brisbane South Bank, covering their accommodation, our amazing Triple M listeners also opened their hearts as they flooded the phones with incredible donations to cover the rest of the costs.

“I just really felt for that lady and her daughter…I’m willing to donate $500.”

In fact, there were so many listeners calling and pledging money that we have too much, an overwhelmed Amanda agreed to donate the rest to School Sport WA to help other struggling families who can’t afford to send their kids over to chase their dreams.

“Thank you so much…I’m lost for words.”
