Working together to make a difference
Hello Gorgeous People!
Hope you are having a fab weekend! The weather has been sensational! I was thrilled to get my hands dirty and do some gardening yesterday in the sunshine. I have added a peach tree to our fruit trees and I am most excited about it!
As we head into our busiest week ever, I have dropped the ball slightly on the home front. I thought school started back this Tuesday. I just learnt last night it's Monday! So a quick check was in order this morning to see that the Summer uniforms fit - they don't! Fotunately it's sport uniform tomorrow so that buys me another day to sort all that out. At least I have dinner sorted.
All in all though, they are not real problems and easily overcome. Unlike thousands of people facing homelessness on the streets of Adelaide who are unsure where their next feed will be or where they will be sleeping. Safety is a big concern. With that in mind, we had the priviledge of supporting Catherine House's Gala Dinner Fundraiser on Friday night, held at Adelaide Town Hall. Catherine House does an amazing job providing emergency accommodation for women aged 18 years and over who are unaccompanied by children. Catherine House not only provide a safe place of accommodation but also rehabilitation. A safe place to recover from what has lead to homelessness, be it abuse, trauma or living with mental illness.
Recently MumKIND has helped Catherine House set up a cottage that will help support two women at any given time. There has been so much love and care poured into this project so that each woman can have a warm, inviting and safe place to recover. The attention to detail from Felicity and Kelsey from @felkke.studio on behalf of @mum_kind to make this a safe, warm and welcoming home is to be noted. It's not just a 'safe house', they have turned it into a 'safe home'.
If you are not already, follow MumKIND and Catherine House on Facebook and Instagram to see their latest projects. It honestly doesn't take much to make a difference, particularly if we are all working together. So please, get involved!
We hope you have a wonderful week ahead. Don't forget to take some time out for yourself. Even if it's a moment in your hectic week to sit in the sunshine and feel the warmth on your beautiful face.
As always, if there is anything we can do to make your dinner time easier, please don't hesitate to contact me.
