BIG GROUP HUG
A formal charity since 2014, Big Group Hug operates out of Bundoora in Victoria, Australia. Their focus is on helping young children and in particular, vulnerable children and their families.
HAYDEN'S HELPING HANDS
Hayden's Helping Hands was started by 12 year old Hayden who made it his personal goal to help homeless and vulnerable people in Melbourne.
Once a week Hayden, with a group of volunteers who are predominately kids, go into Rebecca's Walk in Batman Park located in the inner city of Melbourne. Here they are met by between 60-100 homeless people who know to expect them and come for help with food, clothing and blankets.
HHH also respond to direct messages for help from vulnerable families in the Northern Suburbs.
HHH is a registered charity with a Board and annual report.
In 2016, Hayden was awarded the "Pride of Australia" medal for the work he has been doing to help the homeless.
