Participating in their 1st 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? Donate as much or as little as you can to help make a huge difference to people who need it most.

So far this year I helped provide

143

Individual support programs

377

Beds

1510

What an amazing cause. We are exposed and bear witness to the day to day impacts of homelessness by working in the city and it breaks my heart to see the same people day in day out struggling with the challenges homelessness presents. Good luck with the sleep out Jon and I sincerely admire this initiative
