On episode 73 of the podcast I have an amazing yarn with Gali Blacher. Gali is the Co-founder of a social enterprise called ‘The Good Box’, who help thousands of Australians experiencing homelessness receive beautiful boxes with firsthand quality items.
The boxes are a vehicle to an important conversation which can help some of the most isolated people in society to be more likely to seek and accept assistance. The Good Box also provides school and corporate engagement programs to educate staff and students on the important social issue of homelessness.
Gali believes that all human beings deserve an equal chance and that if we all work together, a big difference can be made. With a Bachelor of Media, Communications and Journalism, Gali is a social media guru, a content wiz and an active volunteer for different causes.
Listen to our yarn as Gali shares her personal journey and what led her to creating the @thegoodboxenterprise with co-founder Maddy Jones. We highlight some of the preconceived ideas and stigmas about why people experience homelessness in Australia, the amazing work that Good Box does and how you can get involved and help someone in desperate need.
