I think I am one of the lucky ones – a beautiful family, great friends, a comfortable home and a successful career. I don’t really need for anything else, but for many the same words would have been quoted and now they find themselves without anything and homeless. We can’t and we should not take things for granted.
There are some 100,000 people each night that lay their head in a homeless environment – possibly scared, cold, hungry and not knowing what the next day will bring. Its not how its happened, its what we can do to try and make a difference. We need to provide a world of hope for those less fortunate than ourselves. It is for the grace of god that we are not in this position. Me deciding to complete the CEO sleep-out will open my eyes in some part to what pain others go through, and with the support of your donation we just might make a difference for a few. Lets hope so.
Oh and I thought me doing this would give my little 6 year old grandson an appreciation of what he has and how his Poppa is trying to help others.
