It was during their daily walk to work that Gali Blacher and Maddy Jones began noticing the prevalence of homelessness – and the absence of support.
“I started to notice people experiencing homeless on the streets during my life in Sydney, [and] people walking over them like they were a rock on the street,” Blacher tells 9Honey.
I felt like we did nothing. No one smiled, no one talked to them, despite seeing it every day. After researching alternative methods to provide support for homeless individuals, Blacher and Jones created The Good Box in 2018.
