Participating in their 7th Vinnies CEO Sleepout

Helping Vinnies to make a difference in the lives of people affected by homelessness

Every night, thousands of Australians experience homelessness. But it doesn't have to be that way. Once again 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. 

But that's not all - Gandel Philanthropy will help triple the impact, by matching all donations $2-for-$1, if received before 1 June 2021. So please - help as much as you can! Every donation counts, and every dollar will go towards helping some of the most vulnerable people in our community! 


So far this year I helped provide

529

Individual support programs

1389

Beds

5556

Meals

Funds raised over the years
