My Travel Story

by: Alex Grabham Start Date: Apr 11, 2017 - End Date: Apr 10, 2018
Homless people are, on average, expected to die at age 47...that is nearly half the average expectancy in the UK... so I want to make a difference, and here is how and why:

I hope to be travelling for the next couple of years and have a one way ticket to Auckland (NZL) where i hope to eventually move onto Australia. I will also be trying to get into south east Asia to visit and travel. but first I hope to start in the UK in Bangor (Wales) before i go!

BUT!!!!      i want to make a SIGNIFICANT difference as i go!

As i make my travel plans and i see all the opportunities and possiblities infront of me i realise how very very lucky I am, and indeed, most of the people of the UK are! 
In New Zealand one source has said 1 in every 100 people is homeless, while in Australia it is 1 in every 200 people, mostly in large cities and towns where i will be passing through! South East Asia has countless more! Often the cause of homelessness is a combination of factors from relationship troubles to losing a job and it has been shown that aiding the homeless can make a big different both for their lives, and everyone else in the community too!

So i thought, from my own pocket to start, i will try to provide standard meals, basic hygiene items such as vital sanitary items for women and basic, rehumanising items for both men and women such as blankets, gloves, socks and hats! Maybe (if as cheap as possible) a bed for the night in a hostel just to get a good nights rest!
ALL FUNDING is estimates and ALL donations will go to these people. Amounts stated are as much as I can raise rather than actual need!
But i need help! so the hope is to raise awarness through social media and to fund these and other items.

My plan is to post a picture  on instagram (see link) with every person i come across and the items provided for by me because of you!

But above all, i aim to give just a little hope to these people, to put a smile on someones face and give back to people less fortunate than myself. 

So please, can you help me do this? If so, every donation will be used for the above purposes and I will maintain regular posts of everyone i come across so you can see what you can do just by giving a little!
