In February 2011, a girl decided to start an online fundraising campaign to reward a very caring and humble big issue vendor who despite being homeless has always extended the most polite, warm, generous and kind hearted of friendships to those around him.
This is the inspirational story of how Phoebe Escott-kenny managed to raise over $1000 for Grant Richards (a.k.a 'The Polite Guy) through Facebook with the donations of many thoughtful and compassionate Australians who were touched by Grants story on his online blog.

It is our hope that this story encourages you to go out and do the same for someone deserving in your local community. We would also love to hear of any stories or ideas you have for past, current or future projects in the spirit of 'paying it forward' to a person who is not only in need, but goes out of their way to make the world a better place.
