Every1Counts -Making a Difference

Here is the link – https://www.gofundme.com/22tp3msg#

This year we are walking 100km over 3 days to raise money for Making a Difference. Through this organisation we provide toiletry packs to homeless men, women and children living on the streets in South East Qld.
We aim to provide 2500 kits every year . These kits are filled with basics – toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoo, snack items, new socks, hats etc. These items are basically donated by generous friends and family but this year seems to be tougher for those doing it hard.  This money will buy these essentials that we so need to help those on the streets.
When you see the difference a tube of toothpaste or some new socks can make, it is really humbling.
Please help us provide the essentials.

The MaD Team Update – 2015

10941212_704097129709854_2066088495941818670_nMaking a Difference – Brisbane better known as The MaD Team was established in 2012. Our grass roots community group is not for profit, does not receive funding and is run solely by volunteers. We are available Monday to Friday only; we do check our private messages on Facebook regularly so please do not hesitate to contact us with your needs or offer of help. We assist families in crisis with MaD starter packs – pamper pack including toiletries, cleaning products, a kitchen starter kit which would include dinner set – cutlery – saucepans and linen. We post on our Facebook page what our families require and assist as best we can with their wish list.

HOMELESS BACK PACKS: Donations for homeless packs are collected throughout the year and are distributed twice a year, before winter and Christmas. The toiletries are sorted and placed in back packs and then given to the homeless.

We assist many Community groups that do not have funding with appeals throughout the year. This includes BREAKFAST CLUB – REDCLIFFE who assist families in crisis and the homeless and PROJECT LOVE AND CARE who donate care packs to children going into foster care, we also organise an appeal for this wonderful group each year.

Delivery and pick up is Monday to Friday only unless otherwise organised with Administration. We do not take donations of furniture, white goods, second hand electrical items, toys or clothing as storage is a continual problem.  If we need clothing we will post up on a needs basis on the main page. We are unable to offer cash.

Making a Difference – Brisbane has been life changing for so many families, we have support from so many wonderful donors – people who organise with their co-workers, families and friends collections throughout the year and that is why we are able to continue to assist those in need.
