Put the Fun back into Fundraising
Night Ninjas Inc. is a not-for-profit organisation focussing on helping people who are experiencing homelessness.
Operating across the Redlands Shire in Brisbane's south-east, crews of volunteers have been going out onto the streets providing essential items to those that need it most - food, blankets, clothing, toiletries and other essentials. All provisions have been donated by locals; families, businesses, service, school and community groups. The groundswell of support from within the community over the last 18 months has been overwhelming and the realised consciousness of the plight of the homeless within our environment continues to rise.
The Night Ninjas also offer a referral assistance to organisations that can provide emergency housing and other forms of assistance. In the long term, they plan to create a Drop-In Centre to service the Redlands, which would include proper sleep facilities, laundry and bathing facilities for those in a desperate circumstance. Homelessness happens and it can happen to anyone.
On Sunday, 30th April, local company, Mike's Marine, Capalaba Sports Club and Redland City Bulletin are proudly hosting a Barefoot Bowls fundraiser to assist the Night Ninjas.
