As an accountant and financial advisor, I strive to find solutions to all kinds of business and personal financial hurdles that clients may face at different stages of their lives.
Vinnies also helps many people through times of financial hardship, by providing specialist homelessness services Australia wide. Official figures show that across Australia, more than 105,000 people are homeless, and the crisis is growing. Women and girls are especially are at risk as they make up about 59 percent of all clients who access homelessness services. A contributing factor for these people is domestic and family violence.
I’ve chosen to participate after recently hearing a young woman tell her story where she was forced to leave her home to escape from a violent and abusive environment, with 2 young children no money and nowhere to go.
I can only imagine how difficult that situation would be. Spending one night sleeping out in the cold seems a very small sacrifice to pay to raise money for such a good cause.
Please join me in supporting this worthwhile cause to help make a difference to the lives of others suffering homelessness this winter.
