At Upside Realty, we spend our days working around and thinking about property. This connection to people’s homes means that homelessness is an issue that I personally, and Upside as a business are very conscious of.
It is all too easy to forget that many Australian’s don’t even have a home. The notion of simply having a roof over our heads is something that we often take for granted. Every night, thousands of Australians experience homelessness - but it doesn't have to be that way.
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. Each CEO Sleepout participant commits to raising thousands of dollars to help Vinnies provide essential services to the people who need them.
This year I'm 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.
To help break the devastating cycle of homelessness, I need your support. If you can help me reach my target, any amount can make a huge difference to people who need it most.
