Participating in their 2nd Vinnies CEO Sleepout

I am sleeping out again, one night isn't a lot, but it can make a whole lot of difference

Second year in a row I'm taking part in the Vinnies CEO Sleepout to raise money for the St Vincent de Paul Society to support Australians in need. 

Once again I'll be sleeping outside in a cardboard box to raise awareness and bring home the realities of homelessness. 

It is only a token gesture on my behalf, because I come back to a safe home again the next day!

However what I raise can and does make a difference ??

I am reaching out again for your support. 

Forego a treat and donate instead! 

Maybe ask your family to not have that special meal at a restaurant and celebrate eating baked beans out of a can in your backyard instead.

Dig deep :) Whatever you can give is good enough!

Every night, thousands of Australians experience homelessness. But it doesn't have to be that way!

Thank you ?
