Participating in their 1st 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 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 to raise awareness and bring home the realities of homelessness.

I'm proud that my business Allbids.com.au participates in many charities but this one is very personal because there were a few years when I was younger where I found myself couch surfing. I was lucky enough to have friends who helped me, and I didn't have to sleep out in the cold. But I know what it's like not to have somewhere you can call home and return to safely every night.

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.
