The Australian Nerdfighters are running a project to create and hand out care packages to the homeless in some of Australia’s major cities.  
 
On any given night one in 200 Australians will experience homelessness. We aim to hand out 300 care packs which will include essential hygiene items, water, snacks, socks and scarves, and an info sheet detailing local support services.
There are a number of ways to help our team of dedicated Nerdfighters reach our goal: you can knit scarves (http://dft.ba/-knitting), make a cash donation (https://www.mycause.com.au/page/67002), or volunteer (http://dft.ba/-packs4homeless
Like our Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/packs4homeless) and follow us on Twitter for up to date information on the exciting happenings with the Project, and to help show your support!

Thank you so much to everyone who participated. If you watched the livestream, voted for videos, made a video, watched videos, commented on videos, or made a donation…the awesome of this day is because of you. 

And also thanks to the people who volunteer their time to the P4A…here’s a limited set of credits.
