Sunday Mail Column: Street Swags
|February 7, 2010
It’s the first Sunday of the month, which means our First Sunday Club is back! In January I launched the First Sunday Club asking readers to join me in donating $10 to a specific cause on the first Sunday of every month. Ten dollars isn’t much but through the “power of many” we can make a difference.
So where is your $10 going this month?

Thanks for reminding me about Streetswags. I had heard of them a couple of times previously, but had not known how to support them. We went without Thai takeaway & wine tonight and so hopefully someone can have a new swag.
I recall many years ago reading some Andy Warhol where he was writing about the indignity of homelessness. Where people are always stigmatised by not being able to be clean. He proposed “stations” where homeless could go and wash and clean their clothes and thereby walk the streets like everyone else. Thats always stuck with me as eminently sensible. Streetswags seems to be a step in this direction.
Good on you, Liz! (I do love Thai takeaway so I take my hat off to you for going without!!!). Thanks for getting onboard and helping. And I love that Andy Warhol idea … it’s all about dignity, isn’t it?
