CEO at Reventon
Location: Melbourne

JOIN WITH US AND LET'S MAKE HOMELESSNESS HISTORY

In 2005, I founded Reventon with a vision of helping everyday Australians achieve their dreams of owning a home and flourishing financially, so it deeply saddens me to learn how many people sleep on our streets without a roof over their heads. According to figures released this March by the Australian Bureau of Statistics, homelessness has risen 14% in the last 5 years, with over 116,000 people currently living without a permanent home across Australia.  

Unlike the 23,000 people who live rough in Victoria alone, I have the comfort of knowing that after my one night on the streets, I have a home and family waiting for me - and whilst I’d love to take all the credit for it, I know that these blessings aren’t all my own doing. It’s so important that none of us takes these things for granted, and it can take putting yourself in someone’s shoes to truly understand and empathize. It can be tempting to ignore the impacts that homelessness has on people as we go about our daily lives, but it’s essential that we never fall into the error of believing that homelessness is a just outcome, or something that’s deserved. In the end, we're all human beings and subject to circumstances outside our control. 

Mental illness, childhood trauma and abuse, family violence and the disease of addiction all contribute to creating situations that drive people onto the streets, into dilapidated or condemned buildings, emergency boarding facilities, cars, and insecure housing each night. That’s why I’ve decided to join with other CEO’s in raising funds and awareness about this important issue and hopefully promote some compassion and understanding for those who are most vulnerable in our community. 

Please join with me in making a difference by making a donation. Your generosity will make an impact addressing homelessness and improving people's lives.

Hi Chris, as per your advice, this amount was your last 32 finish Prizemoney in the recently concluded inaugural Ron Atkins Classic held last weekend in Launceston. Having you there in attendance, made the tournament (and Celebration Dinner) feel that bit more special. Keep up the great work mate, we all hope to see you back in the 'Apple Isle'.
