It is possible for people to get out of their homeless situation and many people have already proved this feat.
Last week CEOs in North Queensland have been doing sleep outs and have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for the homeless. It might be only one night here and there for these CEOs, but it shows the homeless they are not forgotten and there is help available.
We hope the message to never give-up is spreading. Gary Poole, from the Sunshine Coast, Qld, spent years on the streets as a teenager. He said he had to leave an abusive and hostile home. There are different reasons why people are homeless, but they all matter.
Gary is now a successful businessman, however, he doesn’t the luxury of his current life for granted.
Sleeping safe and comfortably is not something everyone looks forward to at the end of each day. Spare a thought for people less fortunate and give where you can – even with a smile and no judgement.
