It’s time to do something about homelessness in Australia
This Friday, Jarrod and I are going to be sleeping out to raise money for Mission Australia.
We are both so grateful to have a roof over our head to protect us from the elements, a comfy bed to sleep in and the safety of a front door to lock. We know how lucky we have been with our careers, opportunities and family support.
Unfortunately not everyone is this lucky. On any given night more than 116,000 Australians - including over 44,000 children and young people - don't have a safe place to call home. This statistic has risen almost 14% in the past 5 years, and in a wealthy nation like ours this is unacceptable. It’s time that we give back.
All it can take is losing your job, suffering from mental illness or a health issue, escaping a domestic violence relationship or financial hardship and homelessness could effect you. We all have the power to do something about it.
We are raising money for the homeless by doing our own Sleepout to support Mission Australia and we’d love your help. Your donation will help support those at risk or experiencing homelessness. Thank you in advance for your support!
