Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

This is a great opportunity for me to understand what homeless people endure every night. Nearly 7,500 people sleep rough on the streets of London every year. They come from every walk of life, and many of them want to find work.

I want to challenge the perception that homeless people are any different from the rest of us. Homelessness begins when something bad happens and you don’t have family or friends around to help. It could happen to any of us. Most of us are fortunate enough to have a comfortable bed to sleep in. Be honest, how many of you have walked past a rough sleeper on a cold and rainy night, thinking: „Oh, I should give him something ….“ and then just walked away! This is your opportunity not to walk away, but to take action and to make a difference by giving.

This is very close to my heart, as I am sure that none of us can even start to imagine what it must be like to not have a place/roof over our heads, to go home to and not just for one night but every single day & night. Most of us only think of the physical side of actually sleeping outside and how hard it must be being subjected to the elements but please also consider the psychological effects (our mental health) of always having to live in fear.

At UK Health Radio we promote a Healthy Lifestyle. I find it heart wrenching that there are so many people that are not even close to taking that first step in attaining their Health Freedom, because let's face it, living on the streets is not healthy.

I am banking on YOU not to walk away and to support those who are less fortunate. Please give as generously as you can, so that a lot more people can attain their Health Freedom.
