Mike Chalmers

CEO at Cafe Outside the Square
Location: Adelaide

Participating in their 7th 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

109

Individual support programs

287

Beds

1149

Meals

Funds raised over the years

When I was 16, my dad was so violent that I had to leave the family home because I couldn't take the beatings anymore. I was still in school. I had to protect my mother and siblings, but the beatings and treatment got to a stage where I couldn't protect them anymore. I spent 2 years living in abandoned squash courts and then in a car that I purchased after saving my Austudy money. I also worked at mcdonalds at the time. I still kept going to school, which was hard, but I kept going because I jad no choice . I never share my story because I don't like people to feel sorry for me because it is what it was and that's the way it was. Well done
