Interesting Article - 10 year old boy creates portable shelter for the homeless

I saw this on TV this morning and thought it was a real feel good story and a very practical idea for the homeless.  Here is the link to Channel 9's interview.

Another feel good Brisbane story is Orange Sky Laundry which was the brainchild of two Brisbane friends. Here is an article about them.   Recently they have also set up a pilot van for showers for the homeless called Orange Sky Showers.  They were Young Australians of the Year in 2016.  An amazing story and yet such a practical simple need for the homeless.  Clean clothes, someone to talk to and now trialing access to showers.  Brilliant.
