When I arrived at work this morning there was a fellow who looked 70+ sipping his soup patrol tea as he was shuffling though the Supreme Court Gardens. He only had shorts on so he’d pulled up a pair of footy socks to try and keep his legs warm. It was so sad to think that somebody’s grandfather slept out in the cold last night.
Realestate.com.au and Mission Australia launched their House for the Homeless campaign yesterday. $1 will be donated for various Mission Australia projects for every person who visits, up to $100,000.
Every dollar counts, sure, but I don’t know how far $100k goes in the current real estate market??? A 6th of a house???
The Youth Affairs Council of WA is also running a campaign to highlight the problem with a “postcard petition” aimed at Premier Carpenter.
