The BigSleepOut can have dramatic effects.
I can't say that I like panhandling very much - but here I go again. The charity fundraiser for Lifewise is fast approaching and my fundraising has been a little slow. That's not to say donations haven't been made - I have a network of generous friends and the ball is definitely rolling.
I've made this message to include stacks of cash - because that dilates the pupils of 36.5% of Aucklanders and places them into a more receptive state. Add in a picture of a member of the royal family and if you find yourself on the brink of St Vitus dance and begin to ululate, you'll know why. You are powerless to resist.
So, while I have you in this compliant state - follow this link - make a donation to help end homelessness and I promise the next flat white is on me.
