About Us

Pay a sack forward aims to support those experiencing homelessness in australia through the distribution of ‘Survival sacks’. 

Just five dollars allows us to provide an individual with a sack containing basic essentials including food and hygiene products.



Why Donate?

Every donation does more than you think. Every dollar donated allows us to cloth, feed and help those facing homelessness.

Pay a Sack Forward uses every dollar to make direct and social change and nothing goes to waste.



Support us!

These are distributed by our volunteer team, and through our partner organisation’s including food vans, drop in centres and outreach services.

Come visit us! Pack a sack and grab a coffee at our HQ’s:

Brisbane HQ – Studio Thrifty 4

Melbourne HQ – Thyft


Give back to those in need



Sacks are distributed by our volunteer team through our network of partner organisations including food vans, drop in centres and outreach services.

How we Fundraise

We are extremely lucky to have an amazing team of café’s and businesses who have been generous enough to donate some of their counter space to display our donation tubes. Our supporting cafe’s have played an integral part in helping move PASF from a small concept into the real and tangible program that it is today.

Through their passion to help create change, they continue to help spread awareness through the community whilst generating much needed funding to provide support and care to those who need our sacks the most. To check out our cafe network, click here to find the supporting cafe nearest you.

$5 Dollar Sacks

Each five dollar donation allows us to provide an individual experiencing homelessness with a sack containing the basic essential food, hygiene and warmth supplies. 

Additionally we provide our support partners such as drop in centres, food vans, outreach services and community groups with bulk product supply, food supply for weekly meals, and clothing from our op shops. Emergency accomodation is our latest area of interest and support, specifically in the form of home share. 

At pay a sack forward we are committed not only to the support of those experiencing homelessness but also those highly at risk of homelessness.
