Participating in their 4th Vinnies CEO Sleepout

One night isn't a lot, but participating for one night 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 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.

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

So far this year I helped provide

90

Individual support programs

238

Beds

954

Meals

Best wishes Barnie. We will be thinking of you on the night. So different it will be without everyone together.
