As we head into a season of Christmas spending and sharing it is worth thinking about what the Homelessness Supports Service Referendum means. Sadly the question itself is awkward. Thank goodness we can access answers to Frequently Asked Questions at bit.ly/1T1jVca
The answer to question six tells me that for each $300,000 that my warm home is worth I would pay $6 towards services for the homeless. As I prepare a nutritious meal, fool around on my home computer and do my Christmas shopping I think I can fumble around in the dark recesses of my pocket and find $6 in order to give someone else a hand up.
