Vinnie's CEO Sleepout

Wednesday, 9 June 2010

The lovely Meredith from Dalton's Books here in Canberra is doing a really fine thing this forthcoming wintry 17 June. She's sleeping out. No, not at a friend's house, not camping. Well, kind of camping. She's sleeping out for a good cause - it's St Vincent De Paul's CEO Sleepout - where brave souls brave the elements in support of the homeless - to experience first-hand the difficulties of life on the street.

Notable business people and CEOs are sleeping out in Australia's capital cities, hoping to raise awareness (and funds) of the plight thousands of people suffer all over our country. All money raised during this icy feat will go towards helping Vinnies help the homeless.

The ACT is our smallest state/territory by far, yet Canberrans have really jumped on the bandwagon. Most astonishingly, we are providing the secondmost number of CEOs registered for this sleepout - next to Sydney - and have already raised over $176,000 for a combined national total of $1,184,873! GO CANBERRA!!!

Learn more about how you can get involved at the CEO Sleepout website. You can also make a direction donation to this extremely worth cause. Don't duck your head under your doona. Get involved - and support amazing people like Meredith who are easing out of their comfort zone in support of those in need.
