Participating in their 7th Vinnies CEO Sleepout

One night isn't a lot, but it can make a whole lot of difference- Year 7

Every night, tens of thousands of Australians experience homelessness. But it doesn't have to be that way. This year I'm taking part in the Vinnies CEO Sleepout for my 7th year running, to raise money for the St Vincent de Paul Society to support Australians in need. For one night, I'll be sleeping outside as part of a cold, wet, and uncomfortable eye-opening experience to raise awareness and bring home the realities of homelessness.

To help break the devastating cycle of homelessness, I need your support. Will you please help me to reach my target? Donating 50 dollars can make a huge difference to people who need it most. 

I have witnessed first hand the terrific work that Vinnies do, providing support, getting people off the streets and back into a meaningful life. No one is born wishing to become homeless, there are always devastating events that cause homelessness. Domestic violence to women and children is just one of these. 

Thank you in advance of your support.
