Hi everyone. We have a very unique and urgent request for help today. Sarah is a single Mum with four children. Two of Sarah’s boys have complex special needs. Tyson is 7 and has cerebral Palsy and Theo is two and has epilepsy. Sarah’s car needs major repairs and as a single parent unable to work, Sarah is not able to afford the costs of her car repairs. Sarah and her family cannot live without a car. Tyson can only walk very short distances, often only a few steps, and both he and Theo need constant and numerous visits to […]

We did it Melbourne! Thanks to your incredible donations and support we were able to provide 50 young people affected by lockdowns with these amazing food hampers! Thanks to the beautiful people at Market in a Box we also provided 22 giant fresh fruits and vegetable boxes (each box feeds a family for a week!) to the young people as well as some senior citizens affected by the lockdown. These hampers were delivered to the young recipients by Sandra and Toyin from Yarra Youth Services Richmond hub. A huge thank you to our incredible volunteers Dayle, Simon and Annette who […]

For just over $17, you can help get one of these food hampers to a young person experiencing or at risk of homelessness. Each pack contains cereal, milk, pasta, pasta sauce, biscuits, baked beans, noodles, spreads, tuna, chips instant meals, and more. We spend wisely and hunt for bargains, making a few trips to different stores to get as much as we can for as little as wr can. We priced each pack at $17.78 once we put them all together. This less than HALF of what we have been able to purchase thanks to your generosity. We still have […]
Lockdown is hard on everyone but we have some particularly vulnerable youth aged between 13 ans 18 we are supporting. We need to make up 50 food and essential bags for youth at Richmond flats and Fitzroy. Each bag will contain essential food items such as milk, bread, pasta, pasta sauce, tuna, cereal, noodles, baked beans and soup. We will also be providing Period Packs where needed and toiletries packs to each person containing body wash, shampoo and conditioner, toothbrush, toothpaste and deodorant. Because of lockdown rules we unfortunately cannot accept donations of items in person. We need to ask […]

Tomorrow we have two separate families to visit. Two Mama’s and their kids who have all recently fled domestic violence households and who have had to leave everything behind. We’re delivering sanitary items, clothing, toiletries (one family has severe allergies), shoes, school bags and school items, plus warm clothing and jackets, blankets, household goods and entire kitchen and linen set for one household. We’re also delivering three bikes so the kids can make the long trek to school. We can’t do this without your help and without our incredible volunteers. A huge thank you as well to the people from […]
Beanies! And gloves and scarves and gorgeous warm hand warmers. Thank you so much to everyone who has knitted for us this year. We sincerely appreciate your time, love and support. Thanks to your generosity, based on what we have in stock and what we still have promised, we now have plenty of warm winter woolies to help our friends on the street stay warm this year. These winter woolies will be heading out over the next coming days and weeks in our Winter Warmer packs. Thank you so much to everyone who sent in items. We appreciate your support […]
Underwear is a basic human right. It is the most used and replaced item of privilege that sits in our wardrobe. You probably didn’t realise that having underwear was a privilege until you read this… But it is. And considering we have to wear it, why not support companies who look after people when we buy it? Underwear for Humanity makes underwear from recycled materials which helps save the planet. They also donate a portion of their sales to us with each purchase. Do you know what that donation per purchase does? It employs women. Women experiencing homelessness, women released […]
You’re never too young to volunteer! Gorgeous little Cristian came along with his Mum, Teresa today to drop off this incredible collection of toiletries and sanitary items for those in need. Teresa had been collecting items for months and rallied friends, family and work colleagues to pitch in and get these incredible items for us. Thank you so much Teresa and to everyone who donated. And thanks to Cristian for being such a cute little helper! *Photo shared with parents permission.
What a day! Our very first day of packing orders saw around 600+ recycled environmentally friendly under garments sent off to their new homes! We learned the ropes together and after a bit of a cautious start we soon had these orders flying out the door. We are so proud of our incredible partnership and our inspiring team. The air was electric and we were so proud when we got to the end of the order batch. This is a game changer. This is like nothing we have ever done before. Imagine buying a pair of undies or a gorgeous […]
