Stories like this make me feel really humbled and realise that the world needs more people like Lucas, Nicholas and the Orange Sky Laundry organisation.
We are so fortunate to have a home with comfy furniture and hot and cold running water available to us everyday but there are many in this world who do not have a place that they can call home where they can have at least one nights sleep feeling safe.
Orange Sky Laundry may not be able to provide shelter but they can at least make the 300 homeless people in their city of Brisbane feel cleaner and sleep in clean bedding. It is a small thing to us but a huge thing for them. Good on you lads.
