Participating in their 5th 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. This year I'm taking part in the Vinnies CEO Sleepout to raise money for the St Vincent de Paul Society to support Australians in need. 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, I need your support. Will you help me to reach my target? Donating 50 dollars can make a huge difference to people who need it most.

So far this year I helped provide

94

This year we have a real challenge at Vinnies. The pace of homelessness has grown in recent years and things are tougher for so many Australians as they face vulnerability for the first time in their lives. Lets support them through the Vinnies CEO Sleepout in 2020
