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 […]

We were so pleased to receive three boxes of hand made winter warmers from Ken and Nella at Knit 4 Charities. These incredibly important and much needed items have already begun hitting the streets and are being sent off to other areas where people are also in need. Thank you so much to everyone who helped make this happen. We sincerely appreciate your time and support 🧶🧤🧣💖

Yesterday we delivered 47 Easter hampers to families in financial crisis so children whose families celebrate Easter could still have a magical Easter Sunday when the Easter bunny visits. Today we will be delivering 38 more hampers and we have over 100 more to deliver over Thursday, Friday and Saturday. That’s more than 200 Easter hampers. Each Easter hamper is made individually for each family, and we make sure there is something inside for every family member in the house. Although we didn’t have a specific Easter fundraiser this year, these hampers were still made possible because of you. The […]

If you would like to donate to help out more people who call the streets home, please head to our website to donate. All donations over $2 […]

If you would like to donate a sleeping bag to someone in a flood affected area please consider donating below https://national-homeless-collective.giveeasy.org/2022-winter-warmth-and-sleeping-bag-appeal

Please Donate to National Homeless Collective (giveeasy.org) Nobody chooses this. Homelessness is never an easy way to live. Homelessness is chaotic, lonely, cruel and cold. This week alone we sent out 40 sleeping bags to help young people experiencing homelessness, 30 more sleeping bags to children sleeping in cars, 24 sleeping bags to assist children to go to school camp, 35 sleeping bags to people sleeping rough, and 70 sleeping bags to our partner organisations to reach even more people who call the streets home. We have no sleeping bags left. Not one. Our 2021 allotment has been exhausted. We […]
