No Aussie should be
without shelter

#GivingTuesday 1 December 2020
COVID-19
You and your family can make a difference

Brad is one of 40,000 Aussies that will sleep on our streets this year.

This makes Brad vulnerable to physical illness, suicide, mental health problems, violence and lack of sleep.

When Brad received his Backpack Bed he described it as “it's the things like this that keep us alive. The small thinks the things that make us homeless people feel like real people again”.

Your donation will help us get more emergency Backpack Beds out on the street ensuring people like Brad get dignified assistance.
