I would like to purchase two swags, instead of getting a christmas present from my family. Can I request the swags to be given to a homeless person in Victoria. Cheers Faye

Apologies for the delay - the last two months we have been swamped by requests and distributions to welfare agencies. Your question has slipped through the cracks. Backpack Beds go where most in need - could be anywhere across Australia. To this it would require more administration. However, it is something we are working on for the future. Thank you again. Blessings Tony
