Real estate stalking for a cause

Posted on Thu, 1 May 2008 by midcenturyjo

Some of you may know that I no longer work as an interior designer but now work for a homeless health team. During the day our team provides outreach mental health assessment and treatment to the homeless within the inner city of Brisbane, Australia. At night I blog about beautiful houses. Quite a dichotomy. More than 100,000 men, women and children are homeless in Australia on any given night. Half of these are younger than 25. Today I heard that my usual real estate stalking website has partnered with Mission Australia for the month of May to House the Homeless, a campaign to raise both funds and awareness of the plight of homeless people in Australia, and more specifically, Sydney. For each person who clicks on, will donate $1 to Mission Australia, up to a total of $100,000. 100% of every dollar raised will go directly towards helping house the homeless so please make a difference and visit now. Click over and perhaps allay a little of the guilt that comes from dreaming of gorgeous and expensive rooms. Some people just dream of a safe place to sleep.

Just clicked! It’s good to help someone have a place to sleep – especially when I have the luxury of dreaming of, and decorating, beautiful homes…Thanks Jo. Great work.

The total is rapidly rising. Thanks everyone for clicking on the link!!!!!

Great post. Jo, I am even more amazed by you. Creative genius and civic minded. Truly an inspiration. It’s shameful how many people are homeless in the United States.
