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

Every night, thousands of Australians experience homelessness. With that comes a significantly increased burden on their health and wellbeing - studies show a 30 year shorter life expectancy and a mortality 10 times higher than the general population. 

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, bring home the realities of homelessness and raise support to try to help the disadvantaged members of our community.

To help break the devastating cycle of homelessness, we need your support. Will you help us reach our target? Donating 50 dollars can make a huge difference to people who need it most. Every donation counts!
