Real stories behind every number

In the next hour, 3,000 Australians will reach out to homelessness services like ours for assistance.1 They are not just statistics; they are real people with unique stories and struggles.

Like eight-year-old Ruby and her father Justin. They found themselves living in a garage, squeezed out by soaring rent prices. Or single mum Laura and her son Ollie, who, seeking refuge from a violent partner, had no choice but to sleep in their car. And then there's Donna, who lost her home when a flood devastated her community.

These stories are heart-wrenching, but they also reinforce our goal to end homelessness and ensure people and communities in need can thrive.

Cryptocurrency FAQs

FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) addressing common queries about cryptocurrency donations.

In short, cryptocurrency is a digital currency that uses cryptography and blockchain to encrypt, secure, and verify transactions.  

Cryptocurrency, often referred to as digital currency or crypto, is secured by cryptography, making it extremely secure and nearly impossible to counterfeit. It operates on decentralised networks, typically based on blockchain technology, which records all transactions across a distributed network of computers. Unlike traditional currencies, cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Ethereum, and others are not governed by any central authority or financial institution. Instead, they rely on cryptographic techniques to secure transactions, control the creation of new units, and verify the transfer of assets. Cryptocurrencies can be used for various purposes, including online transactions, investment, and donations to charitable causes.

Every donation makes a difference to those in need, and by incorporating cryptocurrency donations, Mission Australia is offering another donation avenue for our supporters.
