Every night, thousands of Australians experience homelessness. But it doesn’t have to be that way. This year I am 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. I am fundraising for vital services to support them by taking part in the #CEOSleepoutAU with @VinniesAU.
Please support this valuable cause by donating to keep our fellow Australians safe and sound: https://www.ceosleepout.org.au/fundraisers/paulcolbrook/brisbane
Homelessness is a complex issue that cannot be solved with simplistic, short term solutions. It affects people of all ages and backgrounds who find themselves without a safe and stable place to live. The Vinnies CEO Sleepout raises money for
- crisis accommodation,
- employment, and
- support to find a
- permanent home for thousands of people across the country
More than 116,000 people in Australia don’t have a safe and secure place to live, including an increasing number of young people and older women. To help break the devastating cycle of homelessness, I need your support. Will you help me to reach my target? Every little helps, so donating as much as you can afford can make a huge difference to people who need it most.
Even if you are in a position to donate, you can still help by sharing this post with your friends or social media.
