[Admin Luke] Last year this young Gunditjmarra warrior and supporter of Clinton’s Walk, Isiah, spent all his saved up moneybox money – $140 of his own pocket money – to put on a feed for homeless mob in Fitzroy.
This year, Isiah saved his money and used it to buy a new pair of boots for Clinton to wear the walk to Canberra. What a little legend!
After learning this story, we thought it only right to help the young fella continue his tradition of helping the homeless.
And so this afternoon, we will be co-hosting a public event with Democracy in Colour in honour of Isiah. The event will be held at Victoria Trades Hall and will provide free food for those in need.
This is also an opportunity for homeless folk and supporters to come along and get a chance to meet with Clinton.
Catering is being generously provided by Lentil As Anything.
Come along and support a great kid, have a great feed and meet with Clinton and the Walk For Justice team before they leave Naarm.
