Imagine a city where people do not just walk past each other, but remember “the other” and engage their needs. This July, Superseed, Urban Seed and Life Expedition want to see this happen in this city! Good Neighbour Month is a call to bring warmth to the streets of Melbourne on the coldest month of the year.
On the 29th of June 2014 at 6:30pm, we will be hosting a dinner in celebration of the launch of Good Neighbour Month. We hope to join as partners with you, gathered with our neighbours, ready to invest ourselves into a better future.
Through one dinner, our goal is to feed Melbourne’s homeless in community for the next 3 months. We figure - if each table of 10 could raise $650 - that would almost be enough to support Cafe Credo (on Collins Street) for a whole week. And if we together could gather 20 tables of neighbours who care about a beautiful city, we could open Credo’s doors to the homeless for the entire winter! Credo would then do what McDonalds could never do - embrace people from all walks of life - including those experiencing homelessness, addiction, mental illness or isolation to eat, play and create.
Now all we need to do, is start gathering people around tables, raise some funds - and launch our first Good Neighbour Month with a splash!
For every $65 raised, we'll be able to add a person to the invite list! When you're ready, send your list of invitees to firstname.lastname@example.org and we look forward to eating together in celebration -- having already achieved our first fundraising goal!
Thanks for sharing the journey,
