Participating in their 2nd 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. I'm taking part in the Vinnies CEO Sleepout once again to raise money for the St Vincent de Paul Society to support Australians in need. 

This year, the principals of OLR Primary, Michael Stewart, and Unity College, Dan McShea and I will be competing to see who can raise the most money for homelessness in our area.

For one night, I'll be sleeping outside as part of an eye-opening experience to raise awareness and bring home the realities of homelessness.

To help break the devastating cycle of homelessness in our part of the Coast, I need your support. Will you help me to reach my target? By donating to this cause, we can make a huge difference to people who need it most.

Many thanks,

Josh
