Principal purpose 

Hayden's Helping Hands was established to provide for the relief and alleviation of poverty, distress, misfortune and disadvantage suffered by people experiencing homelessness in Australia including through: 
  • distributing food and supplies to people experiencing homelessness through a network of volunteers, including in particular young people;  
  • improving access to basic human needs for people experiencing homelessness, including sanitation and clothing; 
  • Creating opportunities for people experiencing homelessness to interact on a meaningful and mutually beneficial level with the community, particularly young people; 
  • promoting and raising awareness and understanding of homelessness, particularly among young Australians.

Hi my name is Hayden and I'm 11 years old.  I was inspired to start this charity after my trip to the U.S.A in December 2014 because there were a lot of homeless people there. So I decided to help people at home in Australia.
