On Thursday 22 June, I am sleeping rough yet again for the 6th time to raise funds and awareness for people experiencing homelessness as part of the 2017 Vinnies CEO Sleepout.
As a union leader I am committed to social justice and protecting the rights of workers and I know how easy it can be to find yourself out of a job, fall on hard times and spiral into homelessness.
It would be unimaginable to have to live through a Sydney winter without a roof over your head and it’s important we all remember that there are now over 105,000 men, women and children in Australia who do so every year.
It’s these people I will be thinking of as I huddle up for the night at the SCG and it would great if you could sponsor me to raise money for this important cause:
All money raised will go towards helping the many people experiencing homeless to find the warmth, safety and dignity that they desperately deserve. It only takes a moment to make a difference.
