Last week I met lovely homeless man who I was able to help by giving him some money. But I felt like I hadn't done enough. What I really wanted to do was buy him a house to live in.
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 ❤️

Did you know that some people go with out food and gifts at Christmas time? This makes me so sad. Kids like me not getting presents and food?? I think it's really unfair that all families aren't like mine. So This year my Christmas isn't about me, All I want for Christmas is to help as many people as I can. It makes me sad knowing that I will get special gifts and yummy food and some people will have nothing. So Mum and I made a plan and this year I'm going to help make a difference. We're going to help others have a great christmas too. I want everyone to enjoy the yummy food that should be eaten on Christmas Day and I think everyone should receive a special gift.

We will be packing Christmas hampers fit for kings, queens, princes and princesses and we'll be handing them to the homeless and people in need. It will be filled with yummy Christmas food, special treats and gifts along with my special care packs. I want everyone to have the best day of their year. I want everyone to feel loved cared for.

We've been collecting treats/food to make up christmas hampers but I want as many people as possible to eat special yummy food this Christmas so I need your help too. If you would like to help and donate treats or money please contact me at adrianyounghomelessappeal@outlook.com
