I have been quiet here the last week but it is for a good cause!
In less than four days, ‘Spare10!’ has raised over $1800 to purchase winter essentials such as socks, gloves, beanies and scarves.
Soudalay and I have been talking for months about what we should do to give back, but no ideas were really working out. Then it clicked! By purchasing socks, gloves, beanies and scarves for the Canberra homeless we can answer a practical need!
We’re asking people to spare $10. That’s it. $10 donations towards purchasing winter essentials in bulk for those that need it most in our freezing Canberra cold.
We’ve done our research and these are the items the homeless are asking for right now.
Donations can be made till the end of this month. We’re then handing these items out at the St Vincent De Paul night patrol vans at various locations across Canberra.
We’re overwhelmed with the support we’ve received in the campaign’s first days. Since we’ve exceeded our original target of $1000, we can now look into purchasing sleeping bags! Every spare $10 counts and will go directly towards purchasing as many items as possible.
We would love for all you lovelies to get involved! Donations can be made at the Go Fund Me page.
