10000th Sleeping Bag

It’s never easy to ask for help, even when you use that help to help others.

On Wednesday we gave out our 10,000th sleeping bag. We could only do this because you helped us to do it. Our sleeping bags for homelessness project is entirely funded by donations and fundraisers.

If you’re looking to make an end of year financial donation to a charity, please consider us. 10,000 sleeping bags is a lot, but with over 7800 people sleeping rough every night, it’s not nearly enough.

Sleeping bags don’t last long when they’re used every day. The 7800 people sleeping rough each night aren’t always the same people, and most will need more than one sleeping bag due to wear and tear, exposure to the elements and belongings being stolen or collected and thrown out by city councils.

In any given year over 116,000 people end up needing the services of a homeless support agency. We are one of those agencies, but we are unfunded and can only continue our work with your support.

Please consider making a tax deductible end of financial year donation by scanning the QR code below or clicking the donation link in the comments.

We appreciate every single donation we receive.
