How to have a #cuppa4rosies
It is estimated 92% of those who are homeless have a temporary roof – sleeping in cars, over-crowded refuges, hostels, or couch surfing with family or friends – but not a permanent home. Help Rosies bring the gift of ‘presence’, now and in the future…
As Tony’s* story in our Summer 2016 newsletter highlights, rising housing costs and the battle to meet those costs is one of the biggest financial burdens facing many today, especially pensioners. Many are simply not able to meet the costs associated with a basic standard of living and are forced to make tough choices, often compromising their quality of life. Most have given up on what we take for granted with many skipping meals, including Christmas lunch, to pay for medication. This trend is likely to increase. Rosies has started seven new outreaches this financial year, two were added last year, and four the year prior.
Every one of us deserves support in times of need, especially during the festive season. It’s amazing what a simple cuppa, bite to eat, and a chat with a friend can do.
Did you know your donation of just $5 right now will provide a cuppa for a friend? You can also hold your own #cuppa4rosies event with your family, friends, and colleagues too. Have fun, create awareness, and raise funds.
