One night isn’t a lot, but it can make a whole lot of differenceEvery night, thousands of Australians experience homelessness. But it doesn’t have to be that way. This year Ken Beissel our CEO 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, Ken 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, he needs your support. Will you help him to reach his target? Donating 50 dollars can make a huge difference to people who need it most.
What is the Vinnies CEO Sleepout?
The Vinnies CEO Sleepout is a one-night event over one of the longest and coldest nights of the year. Hundreds of CEOs, business owners as well as community and government leaders sleep outdoors to support the many Australians who are experiencing homelessness and people at risk of homelessness. Each CEO Sleepout participant commits to raising thousands of dollars to help Vinnies provide essential services to the people who need them. To find out your state’s target, click here.
