A West Auckland mother is stunned after popstar Lorde donated $10,000 to help her struggling family.
The family had set up a Give A Little page to try and get help to fix their home or else they would face being kicked out.
The family have three kids, one a 10 year old who is severely autistic and when faced with the issue of having to cough up the cash to fix their home they feared the worst after they already were burdened by financial problems as they cared for their little girl.
The Give A Little page has raised more than $66,000 since it was launched but recently recieved a boost from Ella Yelich-O'Connor, better known as Kiwi pop icon, Lorde.
"Sending best wishes and love to you and your parents, Rhee. Xxxx," she wrote alongside her $10,000 donation.
Awesome work Lorde and arohanui to Rhee and her whanau.
