Participating in their 1st Vinnies CEO Sleepout
One night isn't a lot, but it can make a whole lot of difference
“Seeing things through the eyes of a child reminds you to view the world in a new light. So often, the things many of us take for granted such as a roof over our heads, clothes, meals and freedom from violence, are not available to many in Australian society.
“In my case, it was my
nine-year-old daughter Sofia who gave me the inspiration to take part in the Vinnies
“Sofia is passionate about Aussie
kids who don’t have access or support to get a good education, and seeing that
passion gave my involvement added relevance.
“The funds we’re raising for
Vinnies will help them support those experiencing domestic violence and address
the growing concern older women are increasingly at risk of or experiencing
“Please join us on the night and
help us raise funds for much needed supplies and services for people really
doing it tough.”
