The countdown is officially on for this year’s Vinnies CEO Sleepout! We were thrilled to attend the media launch at White Bay Cruise Terminal, where come 20 June, hundreds of CEOs will descend to spend a winter night outdoors and raise millions of dollars for the thousands of Australians experiencing homelessness.
It was a morning to listen and reflect as we heard from 20-year-old Estelle, who from the age of 13 was left homeless, in and out of refuges, battling drug addiction and experiencing mental and physical abuse at the hands of her father. Vinnies were able to set Estelle up with a home and get her life back on track. It was an emotional account, but one everyone needed to hear to remind us why we do this every year.
We are so proud of Kim Wethmar who will be participating in her fourth sleepout and has raised over $10,000 so far! This year we are aiming to raise $5,000. Every little bit counts and is appreciated. You can donate via Kim’s page here.
