Help For The Homeless – by Dermo67
I don’t know if you could class this as a blog or a rant. The reason I am gonna go on about is the state of our homeless people in our so called progressive cities, for example – Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen and many other towns and cities. Please don’t be offended if your town, city or even village has not been mentioned. The main reason I use the big three is because their councils have the biggest budgets.
Now I am gonna ask for a favour, not at this minute but later in the year. Right at some stage in your fortunate lives you’ve went camping or fishing overnight, now you would have used a tent presumably …well that’s not what I am looking for. I want the sleeping bag that you used once and is lying under the stairs or in the spare room or even your garage.
This will be happening later in the year so that you can have one more camping expedition then I want your old sleeping bags!!! Aye I’m not even gonna give you money for them, simple I just want them.
I am going to organise a meeting with a few folk who have the same feelings towards the homeless folk on our streets, we cannot just walk by those souls and not think that there is something wrong. We as fellow human beings must try and help.
Our plan is to collect sleeping bags and give them to homeless people to help keep warm or give them to a hostel to disperse or use in shelters.
We are going to need help from people i.e. somewhere to store them plus a good sized vehicle to help us to deliver them. We will do our best not to ask for too much but if you could also make a wee donation to help it would be more than gratefully accepted. This would be used for fuel and any leftover will be given to a homeless charity.
Thanks for taking time out to read this wee plea,
