Vinnies Principal Sleepout
Thank you for your interest in the inaugural Vinnies Principal Sleepout, to be held on Thursday 14 November 2019 at Mercedes College, Springfield.
More than 6,000 South Australians are currently without a home each night. You can’t see most of them, because while there are increasing numbers of people visibly sleeping rough, the really insidious growth in homelessness is in the number of people couch surfing, sleeping in their cars, or in overcrowded dwellings. Technically, many of these people have a roof over their heads, but they definitely don’t have a ‘home’ in the same way that you and I do. Sadly, many of these are children.
Just like the Vinnies CEO Sleepout which marked its 10 year milestone in South Australia earlier this year, you’ll join other school leaders to sleep in the open and get a glimpse of what it means to be homeless, while raising much needed funds and awareness. Vinnies has enjoyed great support from schools in the past, and now you have the chance to amplify your school’s impact.
To get involved, hit the REGISTER NOW button below, and commit to raising a minimum of $1,000. We’ll provide you with everything you need to make the fundraising as easy as possible. Funds raised will enable the Vinnies homelessness services to continue to support the thousands of men, women and children who come to us for help each year.
