One night isn't a lot, but it can make a whole lot of difference
I’m one of the lucky ones.
I grew up in Pennant Hills, Sydney and am one of three siblings who had immigrant parents whose values were brilliant and who sacrificed everything to give us a fantastic environment to grow up in. Life felt normal, isn't everyone's? Didn't everyone go to school and have life's' opportunities laid out for them?
At some point I realised that not everyone has that. I realised that life can be determined by the lottery of birth and that the path a person ends up on is not always by choice. Some people fall through the cracks.
Despite the lottery of birth, I believe there is something we can do to help others. Everyone deserves a chance to reach their full potential – whether that be through receiving a great education or some other form of help or assistance when the chips are down.
Several friends and colleagues have asked me why I’m doing the Vinnies CEO Sleepout.
I believe that we can break the cycle and make a difference.
I believe homelessness is an issue that deserves a greater voice.
I’m doing it because I believe in a caring society where we look after each other, especially when we’re down on our luck.
I’m doing it because I believe that change can start with me.
