In late May 2009, footy team loyalties were put aside for a day as m.a.d.woman teamed up with the Hawthorn Football Club to collect tools for the bushfire-ravaged community of Traralgon South.

The Traralgon South fires were believed to be started by arson in Churchill. Eleven people lost their lives, 220 people lost homes and hundreds more received fire damage.

We were thrilled receive donations of so many spades, hammers, rakes, brooms and other garden tools, which will make such a difference to the people of Traralgon South as their rebuild their lives.
