Chris Christofi

CEO at Reventon
Location: Melbourne

Participating in their 3rd Vinnies CEO Sleepout

I took part in Vinnies CEO Sleepout for the first time in 2018, raising $40,185.00 and was the third highest fundraiser in Melbourne. In 2019, my team and I raised a total of $60,564.00 of which my company Reventon donated 50 cents to every dollar raised. In 2019 I was honoured to be appointed a Vinnies Ambassador, which is a role I wear with pride, and will be continuing in 2020.

Reventon started back in 2005 with the aim of supporting Australians to build their wealth and live secure and prosperous lives. But sleeping in a warm safe bed at night, or having a permanent place to call home, isn’t a reality everyone enjoys. That’s why I am inspired to continue my work as a fundraiser, to support people experiencing homelessness in alleviating their plight.

Sleeping on the streets each night is unimaginable but by sleeping out on one of the coldest, longest nights of the year, I am able to get a small glimpse into the reality of homelessness and to raise not only essential funds for those in need but also awareness about the ongoing issue. 

I believe in the face of suffering, it’s essential to be compassionate and show empathy. That’s why I’m setting my sights even higher for my 2020 fundraising campaign by raising $80,000.00. Reventon is also committing to donating 75 cents for every dollar raised. So if you are able to, please consider donating to maximise our impact for this worthy cause – every dollar counts!
