"A summary of why I feel Breakfast In A Bag, and our help to and empathy of the homeless is so important", by an anonymous supporter. We are all only a few weeks away from homelessness and living on the streets. One #BIAB supporter shares their story of how easily they found themselves facing life on the streets.
Look at the pavement outside your house. Now imagine sitting on it, uncomfortable, hard, damp, cold.... Thoughts of homelessness by one of our wonderful supporters on Twitter. #TeamBIAB
Every time I go to work on the train I pass the homeless in the car park, underpasses and station forecourt in one of the most prosperous cities in one of the richest countries in the world. I've had a safe and sound sleep in a warm clean comfy bed. I've had coffee and breakfast then a hot shower and clean clothes. I wouldn't be able to do my job if I'd just crawled out of a dirty sleeping bag in the gutter. Or if I hadn't had electricity to prepare on my computer or charge my phone.
I recently got chatting with the team at Breakfast In A Bag on Twitter after I saw a tweet from them about their new website. We spoke about the time I was living on the streets of London and how I wished they had been around with their breakfast bags when I was there in 2011, it would’ve saved me crawling to London Bridge for a fish sandwich for breakfast! I have written a number of books now, but not all are available to the general public. I am writing more books all the time. I hope you enjoy reading this exclusive excerpt from The Wanderer’s Diary Book 1.
Hari Mountford Interviews Our Founder Michelle Clark Hari Mountford’s a blogger. Hari’s also a London exploring, coffee drinking, cocktail sipping, culturally curious twenty-something whose pockets are, unfortunately, not as deep as her desire to delve into the nooks and crannies of the capital.
