Friday, February 14th, 2020 - Maree Hamilton Scates

In a world first, Australian fiction author, Maree Hamilton Scates, launched her suspense fiction book "The Essence of Life is... LOVE!" The book covers social topics such as homelessness, domestic violence, suicide and depression. Maree wanted readers to engage with the characters and feel their pain and joy. Many of the characters are based on real life .. you won't believe their stories! Maree created a self funded social enterprise, Homeless Hygiene, to restore dignity to the homeless and disadvantaged in communities around the world. 

Homelessness is a growing problem worldwide.From the 2016 Bureau of Statistics Census in Australia,  more than 116,000 people were experiencing homelessness in Australia, representing 50 homeless persons for every 10,000 people. With the escalating cost of living, the homeless epidemic is exploding. Current statistics will reflect this.

Using fiction to raise important community issues is Maree's inspiration. She understands the fact that many people shut off emotionally from social issues that need to be addressed in our communities - she perceives fiction as a softer way to raise awareness. Her drive is that "any one of us can be a pay cheque away from homelessness - it only takes a change in circumstances! The increasingly tough economic climate and the natural disasters that our continent has endured, is only contributing to the problem. Many in our communities are displaced and need help - often the small things can help the most. 

Homeless Hygiene is looking for companies to join us and distribute out of stock lines and samples of the following products:

  • Soap
  • Shampoo & Conditioner
  • Toothpaste and Dental Floss
  • Toothbrushes
  • Mouth wash
  • Roll on Deodorant (no aerosol)
  • Cotton Wool Buds
  • Sanitary Products
  • Hair Brushes & Combs
