The best thing I’ve ever done!

Before Christmas last year (2015), our family was in crisis after I lost my job a few months before. We could hardly afford to eat, so I posted on a community noticeboard simply asking where I could get food vouchers. We were inundated with offers of help, donations of food and some vouchers by the community. A couple of people even brought my kids Christmas presents. It was overwhelming and touched my heart like nothing has before, to know that people care so much.

This gave me the determination and courage to pull my finger out and do something for the future. I’ve gone back to TAFE to study for a Diploma of Community Services and I’m volunteering with a local charity a couple of days a week helping the homeless and at risk. It’s the best thing I’ve ever done, being able to help others and wish I’d done it years ago. – Paul 😀
