Vinnies NSW Executive Team 24

New South Wales

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 our team is 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, all of us will 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, we need your support. Will you help us reach our target? Donating $100 can make a huge difference to people who need it most.

So far this year we helped provide

294

Individual support programs

774

Beds

3097

Meals

Thank you to our Sponsors

Thank you for your words of encouragement after we performed on stage in Sydney. I vow to make a bigger donation when we are rich and famous! Until then, I will think of other ways to help, such as increasing awareness, thus support for helping people who need it. For those who are homeless or doing it rough or tough: 'We are all human and one circumstance away from a completely different life.' For those who may consciously or unconsciously stigmatise people doing it rough or tough: 'We are all human and one circumstance away from a completely different life.' I should trademark this. Copyright 2024 C.M. Thank you again for your kind words, Russell tells us how brilliant you are, a legend, actually. He has a brill heart too and is super supportive. Cheers for doing what you do!

Good Luck!
