‘Sheep to Sheets’

Euroa Gazette - - LETTERS TO THE EDITOR -

HELLO my name is Charli and I am nine years old.

Not long ago my mum, dad and I went on hol­i­day to Syd­ney and while we were there we went to the Padding­ton Mar­ket and we saw peo­ple sleep­ing on the streets.

I didn’t like see­ing this and it made me feel sad.

Now I have de­cided that I want to raise money to help buy some of these peo­ple back­pack beds so they can sleep more com­fort­able by sell­ing bags of sheep poo fer­tiliser and straw with horse poo mulch in bags.

I can also de­liver tray loads of poo so long as you don’t live too far away.

Please help me raise as much money as I can to give these peo­ple some com­fort.

I am aim­ing for $500 which will give me 4 back­pack beds. I am call­ing this project “Sheep to Sheets”. Thank you for help­ing me. Charli Hill Now a few words from mum... Thanks for tak­ing the time to read this. Charli is very pas­sion­ate about this cause and has been lucky enough to have the sup­port of a busi­ness called Back­pack Beds For the Home­less.

They work in part­ner­ship with 450+ home­less agen­cies across Aus­tralia to reach home­less peo­ple who do not have any other form of ac­com­mo­da­tion.

The Back­pack Bed is study proven to im­prove health, dig­nity, sleep, warmth, com­fort and safety.

She will be sell­ing bags of sheep poo, amaz­ing nat­u­ral fer­tiliser, for $4 a bag and bags of straw with horse poo mulch for $5 a bag (lim­ited bags of mulch avail­able).

We will also de­liver the poo by the ute tray load if re­quested and the it is not too far away for $50-$100 (roughly 10-20 bags) de­pend­ing on the amount you re­quire.

Bags are avail­able to col­lect from our front gate at 30 Palmers Rd, Strath­bo­gie.

We will also de­liver to Mans­field, Euroa and Be­nalla if we get enough or­ders.

Please email Charli at kkjnr@hot­mail.com with the sub­ject SHEEP TO SHEETS for more in­for­ma­tion or to place and or­der.

Again, thank you for sup­port­ing Charli in this cause and stay tuned for pho­tos and a run­ning tally of how she is go­ing.

Katie Hill (Charli’s Mum), Strath­bo­gie
