In times of severe weather across much of Australia spare a thought for the 105,000 Australians that experience homelessness on any given night!
The face of homelessness is changing and now sadly encompasses an increasing number of women, families and children.
44% of those experiencing homelessness are women, and over 17,000 children under the age of 12 do not have a stable place to call home in Australia.
If like me, you agree that these staggering figures are simply not acceptable, you can help make a difference.
This year, on 23 June I will be joining business and community leaders from around Australia to take part in the 2016 Vinnies CEO Sleepout, raising awareness and vital funds to support services for the thousands of men, women and children experiencing homelessness across the country.
It is up to all of us to respond to homelessness and help the most vulnerable in our society from becoming another statistic. Hopefully you or your business can support my night out in the cold by donating here.
My fundraising campaign starts today and I seek the support of all my friends and business colleagues to help me reach my nominated target. All donations are tax deductible and receipts are automatically issued.
Thank you so much in anticipation of any financial support you can offer – it is greatly appreciated!
