We recommend joining us from your own car, couch or backyard.
7:30pm – 9:30pm AEST
We strongly recommend against participating in the Vinnies CEO Sleepout from a public place - this is to protect your safety and to respect the dignity and privacy of people who are genuinely sleeping rough.
Please ensure you review our 10 point Guide to a Safer Sleepout prior to bedding down for the night.
We suggest you and your sleeping arrangements are set up and ready to go at 7pm! The broadcast will include a short break for dinner and will finally wrap up around 9.30pm AEST. Then it's time to settle in for your night in the car/in the backyard/on the couch.
You will learn about the work Vinnies does and the important role that business and community can play in reducing homelessness. You will also hear first-hand from people who have experienced homelessness.
You can view the Vinnies live stream by clicking the link below.
What to bring
We recommend wearing warm, comfortable, casual clothes. Bring a sleeping bag and perhaps a single pillow if you would like one, but avoid any creature comforts.
We encourage you to bring your phone, tablet and/or camera so you can document your sleepout experience, view the live stream and share it on social media. Don’t forget your dinner too! More details can be found on our FAQs page.
We have a number of resources for you and your networks/family/friends to utilize on the night including social media signs and tiles, top fundraising tips, and tricks to get the perfect picture! Please see our resources page for further information.
Don’t forget to get busy on social media! We want to see your sleeping setup and hear about your fundraising achievements. Use the hashtags and handles below.
