Donate your coat
If you live in Victoria and have a winter coat you haven’t worn for years, we have found the perfect place to donate it. Off Your Back collects pre-loved coats and distributes them to some of the 23,000 homeless people in Australia. No money trades hands; the coats get collected and given directly to those who need them the most.
It’s easy too: just drop your coats off at one of six collection points in Victoria before August 31st. Done.
There are similar charities around the world, so have a quick Google if you don’t live in Melbourne. And if you don’t have any spare coats, spread the word to your friends and family who might!
