Have you ever been reluctant to donate because too many of the funds go into the running costs of the charity organisation?
We have discovered a worthwhile charity that seems to address this issue. Swags for Homeless is 100% run by volunteers and they only have 1.89% of donations going to overheads! Did we also mention the funds go to a worthy cause? Swags for Homeless focuses on providing shelter for the thousands of homeless in Australia that are turned away from shelters every night. By giving them their own Backpack Bed, they are able to survive the harsh conditions of living without four walls of protection, including susceptibility to frostbite, hypothermia and trench foot.
With only $68 enough to cover the cost of one Backpack Bed for a homeless person, Swags for Homeless makes it is easy for you to positively influence the lives of the homeless in your backyard.
Here at Overells we strive to donate to those in need in our community and beyond. We usually have a vote amongst the team to determine who we would like to donate to and Swags for Homeless was a clear and very worthwhile winner this time!
