Participating in their 1st Vinnies CEO Sleepout
One night isn't a lot, but it can make a whole lot of difference
My friend, Tim Seymour-Smith (city of
Adelaide citizen of the year 2019), co-founded Cafe Outside The Square in
November 2017, which is operated from the site where Vinnies feed the men from
their homeless shelter each night.
Tim runs the cafe with his
business partner, Mike Chalmers, with all proceeds supporting the education and
work placement of people who have experienced or are experiencing homelessness.
Neither Tim or Mike are paid for running the cafe; they donate all their time
for free and do their best to feed the homeless.
Up to 80 homeless people are
fed from the cafe each day.
Through Tim I have learned
about the challenges that homeless people face and how people
doing benevolent acts and raising funds can really help.
To show my support for Tim
and the cause, the least I can do is spend a night out in the middle of
winter, to help raise funds for this most worthy endeavour. Any support you can
give me in my quest will be very greatly appreciated - not just by me, but most
importantly by the people who find themselves in need right now.
So far this year I helped provide
Individual support programs
Better late than never. You've hit your goal mate. Well done!!!! See you next week. Tim
