Show Hope fundraiser for International Students in Hobart

Here I am looking at new RC cars whilst others nearby are having trouble buying food.  It was not all that long ago when I myself didn't have a job, and I began to see how it might be for some people.  So I'm assuaging my guilt by donating $50 to the Show Hope fundraiser here in Hobart, Tasmania:
During this Covid 19 season, international students are doing it tough. Casual jobs have dried up. Parents and family at home are facing tough economic times and financial support is hard.  Some students have $0.  Others have a few weeks before their money runs out.  Students are studying,  feeling alone, and anxious about meeting weekly bills.  Show Hope we have provided hot meals, supermarket vouchers, and fresh produce every Tuesday and Thursday.
