This man was so unwell from hypothermia we had to call him an ambulance.
We hate having to share these photos but this is the reality of the work we do. This is the life of the people we help. Discarded, broken and forgotten. People freezing and cast aside. People calling the streets home where the pavement is their bed. This man had to choose whether to put his jumper on to try and and stay warm or use it as a pillow so his face wasn’t pressed against the cold concrete all night. No one should ever have to make that choice.
This man is real, this is who we help. But we can’t do this without you. We need to get our Winter Warmer packs out to people just like this man and thousands like him, but the cold hard fact is, these packs cost money.
Each pack is valued at well over $120 but with donations we can make them for around $25 each. $25 is the exact cost of a ticket in our raffle and each ticket sold means one winter warmer pack gets handed out to someone sleeping rough just like this gentleman. It also means you could win this incredible luxury holiday.
Your continued support assists us to buy Winter Warmer packs to be distributed to hundreds of people and to literally help keep them alive, this year because of Covid, demand is higher than ever before.
Each pack contains brand new tracksuit pants, jumper, hoodie, socks, underwear, scarf, gloves, beanie shoes, and a sleeping bag!
Each pack costs us around $25 each, the same as just one raffle ticket!
