PETS OF THE HOMELESS (AUSTRALIA)
https://www.facebook.com/pothaustralia
Pets of the Homeless Australia was founded in 2015 by Yvonne Hong. At the time, Yvonne volunteered in animal rescue and for a soup kitchen in her free time. Often when passing through the city, Yvonne would stop to chat to those living on the streets with their pets and she would buy them and their pets some food but always wished there was more she could do.
Upon researching services that look after the pets of people experiencing homelessness, she soon realised there was actually none. A simple need, it seemed, was not being tended to. It was then Pets Of The Homeless Australia was born. With no funding or support, Yvonne bought pet supplies and set out on the street herself to hand the items out. Sharing stories of her experiences on social media, she saw that people resonated with her work; the online community started to grow and the donations came flooding in.

GET INVOLVED & MAKE A DIFFERENCE
There are so many ways you can support homeless men and women in your community. By supporting us – you are supporting those most vulnerable.
We run our own amazing events that you can come to, sponsor or share with others. We recruit volunteers and staff to support the projects we run across the county. We welcome students to join us for their professional placements. We encourage businesses to join us on or DIY corporate volunteer days and much more.
One thing we can promise you is that however you get involved – you will have made a difference.
HARVEST APPEAL
Last year we received food to the value of £25k from faith groups and schools which fed local homeless men and women through the following winter months.
This year, Covid-19 has forced us to reshape Harvest. Transporting donations between homes, schools, churches, and then our projects increase the risk of infection. To ensure everyone remains safe we are asking for financial donations.
Your donations will enable us to purchase essential items according to need, help us to plan for the full year ahead, and allow us to buy fresh produce – supporting our client’s health at this critical time.

SKULLFADES (UK) 
A CUT ABOVE THE REST!
 
Today we are featuring the Skull Fades Foundation, which gives underprivileged people a successful future by providing training, employment, and life skills. Please check them out and subscribe to their pages and channels
https://www.facebook.com/skullfades
Extract from the Skull Fades website: We believe that everyone deserves the opportunity and training to build a positive and successful future. No matter where a person starts in life or what has happened to them on their journey. We believe everyone is a human being first and their circumstances, past, state of mind or their addiction can be treated using a custom-made strategy.
Even if an underprivileged person has the confidence, self-respect, courage, and dignity to help themselves they are often rejected by other people, society, and employers.
The Skull Fades Foundation was initially founded to provide haircuts, food, clothing, support, and advice to Manchester’s homeless community. This is our “Street cuts” outreach service which soon became a regular sight on the streets of Manchester. We then took our work to the refugee camps of Paris, Dunkirk, and Calais.
We always felt we could do more to help people turn their lives around and so we began training underprivileged individuals to cut hair.
