Participating in their 1st Vinnies CEO Sleepout
Let's do our part to support fellow Australians doing it tough!
As a CEO, I completely acknowledge that my life is full of privileges — privileges not experienced and enjoyed by all Australians. This is confronting as I am able to enjoy these privileges while a lot of our fellow Australians are living without even the basic human right to housing.
In Brisbane alone, there are over 5,000 men, women and youths who find themselves without a reliable and safe place to sleep each night.¹ However, I am a big believer that it doesn't have to be this way, and that I have a responsibly to act and do what I can to assist in breaking the devastating cycle of homelessness.
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.
Please join me on this journey, as I would welcome and appreciate any support in achieving my goal of raising $5,000 (and beyond) for this wonderful initiative hosted by St Vincent de Paul.
