Can you imagine how tough it must be to be homeless? Where do you sleep? Where do you wash? Where do you eat? How do you afford personal care items such as sanitary products (which STILL attract a GST – can you believe it!), shampoo, toothbrush or toothpaste?
Well, over 44,000 Australian women face this every day.
Share the Dignity is a group that aims to make a difference to these women by providing personal care products – helping them to retain some dignity.
They do this in several ways, and one of these ways is running an Australia-wide Yoga day on Saturday 2 September at 8am.
And I am participating in this through my business LaughterWorx. It’s super easy to attend:
- come along at 8am-9am and laugh! (Venue is St Marys Church Admin Hall, cnr Norton & Burnet Streets, Ballina – entry via Burnet Street)
- Bring friends
- Offer a gold coin to join in – and put something in the personal care basket
- Have a laugh – for a serious cause!
If you don’t live near Ballina – don’t despair, you can still join in. Just go to #YogaforDignity, or click on this link to find out where your nearest yoga event is happening.
Homelessness can occur at any time – it doesn’t take much for your whole world to change. Please be part of something that makes a difference in people’s lives 🙂
