One night isn't a lot, but it can make a whole lot of difference

This year I am raising funds and awareness of homelessness in Australia. I'll be replacing my warm and comfortable bed with a piece of cardboard and little all else for a night under the stars in mid-winter. It's a very small sacrifice, when too many others have little alternative. Often, the stories that are told by people about their road to homelessness are truly tragic and sometimes we just need a helping hand / lucky break / an angel to get back on our feet in troubled times. Any spare cash, however small, that you donate will make a difference. Thanks, Neil.

To Neil and all the team of wonderful participants, Tomorrow night is forecast to be extremely cold, I commend you for your empathy and support of these homeless people. It 'blows my mind' that even on the upper north shore there are 5,000 homeless, 1500 of whom are under 16. In Summer it is not a good option but bearable. In Winter it is unimaginable what those who sleep rough would be going through. My prayers and thoughts will be with you all and those who you are helping. Best wishes.....Jenetta
