I grew up in an average family household and, although there were times when we didn’t always have enough, we were always happy. For this reason, I’ve always considered myself fortunate. I’ve never been in a position of having nothing or feeling lost, but once I had children of my own I realised how lucky I was to have a home and stability. Life can take you on many different paths and for many of us we don’t always get a chance to choose which one.
I believe Lifewise is doing an amazing job. supporting the thousands of Kiwis, of all ages who have been made homeless as a result of crippling life circumstances.
On the 6th of July, I’ve decided to take part in Lifewise’s annual Big Sleep Out. For one cold night in the dead of winter I will leave my creature comforts behind, be exposed to the elements, and given an insight into what it means to sleep rough.
It’s time that we took a stand because, despite all its complications, with the right approach, homelessness can be solved.
Every dollar I fundraise will be directly applied to Lifewise’s unique “no band aids” approach to homelessness.
The Lifewise response continues to be the most successful answer to the issue of homelessness. So before I bed down on a slab of concrete I’d love to ask if you might sponsor me. Please back me and please back this worthy cause by digging deep today.
