Last week Wayne and I attended Brisbane City Council's Homeless Connect event to teach macramé.
We had a great day at this very important event where loads of services are available like doctors, hairdressers, dentists, vets, etc as well as housing, youth and lots more community services; plus clothing, toiletries, books, blankets, swags, food and much, much more. All free and all in the one location for people who are homeless and/or at risk.
The spirit of the event was amazing and brought home a lot of things for both of us about what we personally try to achieve in the community through sharing creative skills and empowering people through creativity.
Homeless Connect is on every year and anyone can volunteer and take part in the day.You can find out more information here.
