Meet Bill….Bill has slept on the streets and concrete for 9 years and is a humble kind, gentle man who just turned 60! We were touched by his story and wanted to help put a roof over his head so we purchased him a van and renovated the inside so he could be comfortable in his new home ❤️
The van has solar panels, a sink, a divine bed, cook top, storage and a little book shelf as Bill loves to read. He spends his days in the library reading.
Have you ever met someone that brings a presence of light, calm and happiness when they appear?
For us it’s Bill. When he turns up at our HQ for a chat or to bring news it spreads through all departments and we all carry his magic for the rest of the week.
Bill recently came to let us know he has a full time job and is toasty and warm this winter sleeping in his van. It’s a bitter winter in Oz and he said his bones would ache from the cold cement and the freezing winds.
He speaks of good things, the small pleasures that bring a smile to his face. Humility and gentleness ooze from him.
Please be that person that smiles at those living on the streets or perhaps offers the warm blanket, or jacket. Heart lead with action.
Update*: Our mate Bill is now living in our care takers room. After some agro guy tried to kick the vans door in, we knew it’s too unsafe parking on the streets. Bill works 6 days a week as a cleaner and still has his van. Everyone at work loves him. A man of integrity. A little luxury like A/C, a warm shower and a toilet is bringing a huge smile to Bill’s face. He hasn’t allowed himself to go into a deep sleep for 10 years living on the streets. I pray tonight he sleeps the sweetest dreams and isn’t too overwhelmed by us! Look out for those sleeping rough. 💜
