SYDENY, AUS, — Australian acrobat Rick Everett lost his job during the coronavirus pandemic. But the crisis gave him time to fulfill a longtime desire to help others in need.
The former chef and restaurant manager is now offering free coffee and conversation from his kitchen window in Sydney. He also started a communal food pantry and an herb garden.
Everett says he does it just because it’s a nice thing to do and he feels that he’s getting much more in return through conversations and new friendships during a time of isolation and uncertainty.
