Children Lucy, Phoenx, Akasha, Bella and Katelyn are organising at giving tree for Christmas in July at The Adelaide Hills Farmers Market (Mann st, Mt Barker) this Saturday, 23rd (8.30-12.30) July.
The children will be taking collections of practical items to make up bags for people experiencing homelessness. Much needed items are – soaps, deodorants, razors, sanitary items, band aids, toothbrushes/paste, face cloths, wipes, nappies, etc, perhaps something warm – gloves, beanies, scarves. There will be face painting for the kids too, with 20% of proceeds going towards gift cards for homelessness.
“we can all go without treats for a while to help others instead. I want them to have their lives and the beautiful love in the whole world” – Phoenix, 8
“if people don’t have a home, we should invite them for a night or 2, or help them find somewhere safe” – Lucy, 6
“There are a lot of people/families outside right now in the cold, with no shelter, warmth or comfort, not knowing where they will sleep tonight – I am so grateful for my bed, blankets and food whenever I want” – Akasha 10
“it may not look like the giving tree is doing much, but it is a small thing that can have a big impact on someone’s life” – Bella 11
“Imagine all the comforts of home, all the things that make life comfortable – now imagine them gone!!! This is why we should help the homeless” – Katelyn, 12
A bit thank you and hope they get great support on Saturday
