Participating in their 6th Vinnies CEO Sleepout

One night isn't a lot, but it can make a whole lot of difference

Every night, thousands of Australians experience homelessness. But it doesn't have to be that way. This year is my 6th Sleepout running. I'm taking part in the Vinnies CEO Sleepout to raise money for the St Vincent de Paul Society to support Australians in need. On Easter Monday I went out with the Soup Vans (the Vannies!) in Collingwood, to see first hand the amazing work these guys do and the truly appreciative people on the receiving end. 

I'll be sleeping outside on a piece of cardboard to raise awareness and bring home the realities of homelessness.

To help break the devastating cycle of homelessness, I need your support. Will you help me to reach my target of $50,000+ cumulative? I'm at $40,000 so this year need to raise $10,000. Donating even 50 dollars can make a huge difference to people who need it most.
