Dignified Emergency Bedding

I'm raising funds for Backpack Bed for Homeless

Homelessness Week 2022: 1-7 August
Homelessness Week is an annual event to raise awareness of the impact of homelessness in Australia.  Five years ago, the 2016 Census showed 116,427 people across the country were without a safe, secure place to sleep at night.

Sometimes people are living on the street because there are no other options available to them (e.g. crisis accommodation is full) or other problems (such as mental health or PTSD)  being a former prisoner,  or simply not having any family to turn to for help which can make it difficult for them to access services.

These people do not always have a permanent place to sleep. They often are forced to find cardboard and other discarded items to sleep on. This greatly impacts their dignity, quality of sleep and health. With winter now here and temperatures plummeting, I have set a goal of being able to provide 50 homeless individuals with dignified emergency bedding in the form of backpack beds.   

I ask if you would be willing to help provide another human being with a permanent warm, dry bed?  I hope you can. Please help me raise $5,500 for 50 backpack beds. 

Thank you to my Sponsors

Thank you for your humanity I have donated the price of one Backpack Bed + a sleeping bag for someone in need. I think this is an awesome idea & will not be the only time I will donate to this worthy cause. Being a veteran, who has thankfully fallen well on their feet after discharge, I feel for those I may have served beside that have not or for any other human that has not had the best through no fault of their own. Once again thank you for your empathy. Jodie
