Who we are: Just two Belco mums keen to spread warmth in the Canberra cold to the peeps in our community that are doing it tough.
Who we're raising money for: It's for the folks who are sleeping rough on our streets and at local shelters. The ones who are freezing but don't have the essentials like most of us take for granted. We're talking the basics: socks, gloves, scarves and beanies.
Our aim: To give these essentials to as many homeless Canberrans as possible. And it is possible! We've done our research and these are the items they're asking for this time of year.
What we're asking for: For YOU to spare $10. That's it. By sparing $10 we can purchase: - 1 pairs of thermal socks OR - 1 thermal scarf OR - 1 thermal beanie OR - 1 pair of thermal gloves.
And don't worry, we've crunched the numbers on how far your $10 can go.
How these essentials will reach the homeless: Based on the money we raise, we'll purchase as many of these items as we can. The kind peeps at Vinnies will hand these goodies out from their 'Night Patrol' vans. The Night Patrol Vans visit the Dickson Shopping Centre, Garema Place and the Cube Area in Civic every night.
Spare us a $10 now: We need to provide these essentials ASAP because 'Winter is coming!' We'll be purchasing and delivering these goodies in the beginning of June. And yes, that was a Game of Thrones reference!
We hope you can join us by sparing a $10 to spread warmth to those in our community who are doing it tough.
