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? Donating 10 or 20 dollars can make a huge difference to people who need it most.

This year is a little bit different however,  due to Covid 19 restrictions. This year I will be sleeping on the couch at my house with the heater off, something the rest of my family will not be happy about.  

Due to Canberra's climate, 'rough sleepers' do it very tough.  Lets dig deep and help them out.  Thank you for your support.
