Participating in their 1st Vinnies CEO Sleepout
The extent of the Homelessness problem in Melbourne has shocked me
As a new MP for Eastern Metropolitan Melbourne
I was shocked to find that over 14,000 people in my electorate faced a housing
crisis last year. I thought homelessness was just people sleeping on the inner
city streets, but it’s not. Homelessness is an invisible plague in our suburbs –
families fleeing domestic violence, young people couch surfing, and mums
collecting breakfast from the free fruit bins at Woolies.
I’m also sleeping out this year because
homelessness is something that effects the taxi and hire car industry that I
come from. I know of drivers sleeping in their cars because they’ve lost their
homes and are facing huge financial hardship.
Help me break the cycle and reach my target.
Donating $50 will make a huge difference.
So far this year I helped provide
Individual support programs

Customer service, customer service and more customer service. It’s this and the operators partners and drivers that the taxi industry is known seen as an integral part of the fabric of society and a major player of the tourism Industry and helps boat the economy of Australia.

Great cause Rod
Someone had to go first. Homelessness is huge issue in my industry - taxi and hire cars - and now that I'm a member of Parliament I've discovered it's a huge issue in my new electorate of Eastern Metropolitan Melbourne. So, don't be shy. Let's raise some money and fix this.
Good Luck Rod
