Donate & share to show your support
Homelessness is a serious problem. My daughters and I have been homeless twice and I never want to experience that again. I didn't realise we were classed as homeless at the time because there are so many varying types of homelessness and we had somewhere to sleep, so I considered it our home.
Canberra has the second highest rate of homelessness in the country, yet the highest disposable income and is rated as one of the best places to live. We can make a difference.
Communities At Work and St Vincent de Paul are both charities I have personally volunteered with and support whole heartedly. My daughters and I hope to raise $5,000 to help their great work.
I truly appreciate any donation and if you think small amounts won't make a difference, consider this:
$5 will provide 5 meals to those in need and save 5kgs of food going to waste through The Yellow Van
$10 will provide a back to school pack through the Care And Share program
$30 will provide breakfast for up to 20 children through Galilee School
$50 will feed a family of four for a month through Care And Share
Every donation makes a difference!
