After realising this wasn't possible and asking my mum lots of questions I learnt that he wasn't the only person sleeping on the streets at night in the freezing cold. Families and even kids were also homeless. I was shocked and so sad.
Over the past week I couldn't stop thinking about him and the other homeless people and I wanted to do more to help. I decided that I would use my own money from my footy tipping win and take him a back pack with some warm clothes, toiletries and special food.
He really got me thinking of what more I could do to help and Mum and I decided Care Packs would be a great idea. I really want everyone to know they are cared for. So as a family we decided to make 50 packs with necessities and some special treats. It was a big family effort and I am so proud of what we've put together.
Today I got to deliverer our packs to the Base Services and see the people receiving them smile. I can't wait to be able to volunteer at the Base in the school holidays. Meeting him has definitely made me appreciate the love I receive and all the opportunities I get. I'm a lucky kid to have the life I have and I want to try and make everyone's life as good as mine.
As we've had so many lovely people wanting to help too Mum has set up a go fund me page so we can make even more bags. Hopefully I can get enough to make another 50 bags. Please click on the link to contribute or message me for details. I'll keep you updated with photos ❤️
