Our communities are here for us, and we’re here for them. This week’s #GivingTuesdayAUS is focused on Giving Local.
Today we’re asking you to reach out to those in your local networks to help them out.
We love to read local and are grateful to Writing WA to lead the way on this. We love to think of books for our state and think of the good work the State Library are doing. We like to see and think about art from here and we do this with Community Arts Network. There are plays with the Blue Room, literary journalism with Westerly, poetry with Perth Poetry Club, writing groups with so many writing centres, and fun times with each other.
We’re thankful for the hard work of our mates at Nyoongar Patrol who are keeping locals safe and in harmony. We’re thankful for the folks at Short Back and Sidewalks for providing haircuts for those in need. We love Ali from French Resistance providing the Centre for Stories with much needed caffeination.
There are so many other groups and organisations that matter here, that need our support more than ever.
