An Australia that eliminates wasted tourism and technology resources and uses them to help solve the issues facing our most vulnerable people.
To unlock spare resources and provide Australia’s most vulnerable people with access to the technology, accommodation and experiences to get their lives back on track.
Our objective to reach by June 30, 2023
To put an internet-connected device in every room of every women’s refuge in Queensland.
Our guiding principles
We believe that Australia has the spare resources to provide its most vulnerable people with access to the technology platforms and wellness experiences they need to get their lives back on track.
We believe there is no reason why, in the 21st century, there should be 80,000 empty hotel rooms in Australia on an average night, tens of thousands of empty holiday homes, granny flats and spare rooms going unused every week, and 100,000+ people without a roof over their heads.
We believe no person should have to sleep on the street, in their car, or under a bridge while there are spare keys hanging on a wall.
