I know this isn't really a post about Knowledge Management, but it is something that has come to my attention lately and I want to do something about it.
Did you know that there are over 104,600 homeless in Australia? Of these 16,375 slept rough in the cold or in improvised dwellings. Many of these are families with children sleeping rough with a parent.
We can make a difference by giving them these excellent swags for just $68. They can be easily carried and stored and offer protection not just from the hard ground, but from the cold night air.
Jen and I have decided to have a little fund-raiser this Christmas to help as many people as we can. For every dollar you donate, we will match it up to $500. A total of $1000 will help 14 people sleep easier and have a little more dignity and safety to get their lives back on track.
Will you join us in helping the poor in our own back-yard?
If so, please click here and help us reach our target. Every little bit helps and donations over $2 are tax deductible.
