STONE COLD GCSE

Melody, my 14 year old, is studying for her English GCSE. We hope to get a copy of the book, Stone Cold. But for now, we are using Videos and Text that is on the Internet. See below for the whole Stone Cold Episodes by the BBC.

OUR TRUE STORY OF MEETING A POOR HOMELESS PERSON ON THE STREET
Last year, just before Christmas, I came across a young lad sitting on the pavement in front of the shopfronts in Swansea (Wales, UK.) It was poring with rain. I gave him £1. He said, "Everyone is walking past him, the Police keep moving him on. Someone peed on him when he tried to sleep!" I got talking to this poor lad. And found out his mother was in prison. He had nowhere to live. The hostels were full. And he needed to beg to raise £20 to stay somewhere safe. To this date, it still breaks my heart. I want to find this poor lad, and make sure he gets the help and support he deserves. When I gave him £20, which family had given to me for Christmas. I could have cried. I wanted to hug him and tell him it will be OK. I feel we must do more for these poor people. After all, that is what being a mother is all about, is it not? Caring for all children!

STONE COLD GCSE

Imagine being told you were entitled to no help, or support because you left your home. Even though you were being bullied. Having no postal address puts you in danger, and rips you of all your human rights! So where is the HELP? Salvation ArmyCentre Point ? Why don't they get any benefit help?

LOOKING FOR TAT

True story of a young girl who was homeless for a while. And went back to look for her homeless friend TAT.



ROBERT SWINDELLS BOOK 
STONE COLD

Pages 45 & 46

'You mean I'll get no benefit – nothing?'
'Not a sausage, mate, you can take it from me. I've seen it too many times.'

'But – if I don't find work – if it takes a while – how'm I supposed to live?'

He laughed. 'Any way you can, Link old son. Nobody cares, see? Nobody gives a toss. That's the first thing you've gotta learn.' He smiled.

'Why d'you think so many kids beg the punters for change? 'Cause they like it?'

I shook my head. 'Is that what you do – beg?'

'Yep. All day, every day. And sometime I don't make the price of a sandwich.'

'Do – do most people refuse, then?'

'Oh, aye.' He smiled again. “Do you know what a solcredulist is?'

'No.'

'A solcredulist is someone who believes what he reads in the Sun. And do you know what the Sun says – the Sun and thee or four other tabloids?'

I shook my head.

'Well, I'll tell you. They say us kids aren't homeless at all. They say we trick the punters out of their change all day and go home to our mums at night with forty, fifty quid in our pockets, and it all goes on drink and drugs.'

'They don't.'

'They bl—dy do, you know. And the solcredulists believe 'em, and all. That's why they refuse.'

'But it's a lie,' I cried. 'There ought to be a law against it.'

'True.' He laughed. 'There won't be, though.
It's what they all the freedom of the press.'


HOW CAN WE HELP THE HOMELESS?

Firstly, if you are with your parents, don't ignore the homeless. Ask your mum, or dad, to spare a few coins. Help them. Remember, we are the lucky ones with a roof over our head, and food in our belly. They have no family, friends or support. 

Research all the Homeless Charities. Take the contact details with you, when you go out with your parents. Ask the Homeless person what help have they received. And if they are aware of all these charities. Get your school involved to gather research, and put together a report. Although we have all these charities, it does not necessarily mean everyone gets help! Maybe, the school could offer them a free meal.  
SHELTER HOMELESS CHARITY


THE BIG ISSUE
The Big Issue is meant to give the Homeless free magazines to try and help them on their feet. Then they have to buy the magazines. They cost approximately £1.25 each. And sell at £2.50. Profit £1.25. You would have to sell a lot of magazines to make a living! But some people can do it. 


FREE FOOD

I would say foraging in London would be very difficult! And dangerous, if you do not know what is edible. And what's not.


Education is a strange thing. Having cured my Asthma thanks to Dr Greger's You Tube videos. And I know of people that have cured their Cancer through diet. I question are we being taught all we need to know in state School, College, and University?

Dr Greger explains, Doctors are not EDUCATED that a plant based diet cures illness. This is all based on Scientific Evidence! FACTS!



I BELIEVE WE SHOULD HELP THE HOMELESS TO GROW ORGANIC FOODS
GIVE THEM JOBS, A HOME, AND A LIFE WORTH LIVING

WE IMPORT TOO MUCH FRUIT AND VEG. WE HAVE LAND. PUT IT TO USE!

Stacy told to put clothes on by EXTREMIST (NAKED, NOT!)



POOR STACY! WHO WAS THERE TO PROTECT HER HUMAN RIGHTS
AS A BRITISH CITIZEN WHO GREW UP IN LUTON, LONDON?

How I admire Stacy, what a brave young lady. Not once did you swear or make threats against the Extremists. But did they give her the same respect, I think NOT!

I have two ex friends. One Mormon and the other Muslim. Like Stacy, I never once tried to change them. But that did not stop them from trying to convert me to their religion, which I found quite insulting. If I accepted them for who they were. Then why could they not do the same for me. It is hard not to upset someone, when you do not believe what they do. Sadly, both ex friends have caused my family much upset, and stress because of their religion. Personally, I feel there should be a Law against people forcing their religion on people. Especially, when it goes against all human rights!

I think Churches and Mosques should be used to help the homeless!

Manga Maths game personalized cards (Times Table cards)


Melody, my 14 year old, and I came up with this Maths game. I used Melody's Manga style drawings. 

Maths is not one of Melody's favourite subjects. Having a good memory is so important when it comes to studying, and taking exams. Sadly, people with Dyslexia suffer from having bad memories. 

But the good news is. I believe that if you keep playing this game for at least a month, one times table at a time. It should sink in. 

THE TRICK IS, TO MAKE IT INTERESTING! I.E. YOUR CHILD'S DRAWING ON THE CARDS.

I am going to create some maths cards for my friends son. Then Melody and her friend can FaceTime each other, and play the Maths Times Table Game.

I WONDER IF OTHER PARENTS WOULD BE INTERESTED IN HAVING THESE CARDS
MADE FOR THEIR CHILDREN?

I might try them out on Ebay as personalised cards. And see if I can raise some money for Melody's Laptop. Wish me luck! 

JUST SHARING THIS VIDEO WILL HELP MELODY. YOU DON'T HAVE TO DONATE!


My friends and family have been so supportive of Melody. 

Thanks everyone for donations. And thanks Mum for giving Melody £200 towards the Laptop. 
She is a very lucky girl!
