Little paper houses...

We think affordable housing is really important. In fact we're talking about it pretty much constantly on The Brown Couch. Check out this link if you'd like to read over some of our featured comments.

We know we're not alone. Housing affordability is a huge issue for loads and loads of Australians. In fact, we'd go so far as to say it's an issue that concerns everyone. Even if you've secured your own affordable home - whether you're paying a landlord or a bank, or you own your place outright - unaffordable housing has a significant impact on our economy. As the 'resources boom' starts to wane, and we turn to the residential housing sector to fill the void, unaffordable housing will continue to bite.

This week, Australians for Affordable Housing are encouraging us to take 5 days of action for affordable housing.

Today's action calls for us all to get a little bit crafty - if you follow this link you'll get a graphic that looks like this:

You download it, print off a couple of copies, cut them out and fashion them into a neat little row of cute paper houses.

Once constructed, you put them around your own neighbourhood, and draw attention to the Australians for Affordable Housing campaign.


Better still - take a photo and post it to your favourite social media site, along with your message about why affordable housing is important.

... and if you haven't already done so, like the Facebook page, follow the Twitter account, and sign up to support the Australians for Affordable Housing campaign.
