For those who haven’t already heard of the ‘First Home Project’, can I recommend going over to http://www.firsthomeproject.com.au/ and having a look around?
In short, this is an attempt by Jarrod McKenna and Teresa Lee (who have been vouched for by a couple of long-time RRANers) to raise the necessary funds to buy and establish a shared home for themselves and two refugee families at a time, with room to grow should more funds become available. As their attempt to take out a $600,000 home loan was rejected by the bank (because the building is, apparently, too large to be a residence), they’re trying to raise that amount in pledges and donations directly or, failing that, the funds needed to obtain a more expensive commercial loan.
If you’re in a position to give to this project and haven’t already, you should definitely check out their website, and their video, in particular (at http://vimeo.com/46472946). And even if you can’t support this project directly, you can help by telling others about it. (They’ve already received over $23,000 in donations and $215,000 in loan pledges, but need to raise more by their deadline of August 12.)
