Operation Rebuild Seth - Raffle #2

Sometimes bad things happen to good people, and this time it was Seth Wood. He’s a country bloke from NSW, a family man, a fantastic blacksmith and an all-round great guy who lost everything in the recent bushfires - his home, his workshops, and most of his tools. As Seth is an entirely self-employed blacksmith, and a father of nine remarkable children, this blow has been more than most can handle.

He is the kind of guy that’ll go out of his way to help everyone, and so now we, as a knifemaking and blacksmith community, step up to help the rebuild. Many members donated for our massive raffle prize pool. Due to the substantial generosity, and the complex interstate legislation, our prize pool needs to be split. This is Raffle #2 and is open to all States except those in ACT & WA.

Now will you join us to raise the funds needed for Operation Rebuild Seth, rebuild his workshop and get him back on his feet? Give him a place to get back on the tools and doing what he does best? Thank you for your support and GOOD LUCK
