Participating in their 1st Vinnies CEO Sleepout

You never think it can happen to you...

Every night, thousands of Australians experience homelessness.  Especially women over 50. This is an appalling fact for a country like Australia.

With no government investment in social housing in decades, many women over 50 find themselves unable to pay the extreme rents now the norm in places like Noosa.  

I have my own experience of homelessness.  In 2012, too ill to work, I was unable to pay rent and was without a place to call home for over a year. 

This is in no way a story unique to me.  Many women find themselves in the same position.   Many families now too.  

As a real estate agent today, I see first hand the challenges faced by older Australians particularly, to afford a home - either to buy or rent.  This is the challenge of our time. 

But it doesn't have to be that way.  This year I'm taking part in the Vinnies CEO Sleepout 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 an eye-opening experience to raise awareness and bring home the realities of homelessness. One night isn't a lot, but it can make a whole lot of difference

To help break the devastating cycle of homelessness, I need your support. 

Will you help me to reach my target? Donating $1,000, $500, $100, $50 or even $10 can make a huge difference to the people who need it most.  Whatever you can spare is sincerely appreciated. 

Please. You never think it can happen to you. Oh but it can.  Every dollar helps. 

Thank you.
