One night isn't a lot, but it can make a whole lot of difference

Homelessness is on the rise. More people live on the verge of poverty. As a society, we have a duty to help those less fortunate. Gandel Philanthropy has always been a strong supporter of many charitable organisations that work to prevent or alleviate homelessness.  Through this campaign, Gandel Philanthropy will again match all funds raised, $2-for-$1, (for donations made by 1 June) to help Vinnies carry on with their vital services. Please, give what you can - and spread the word!

So far this year I helped provide

430

Individual support programs

1129

Beds

4516

Meals
