I am participating in this initiative to raise awareness of homelessness and its causes in the Hills. Often homelessness comes in the form of 'couch surfing' or those looking for crisis accommodation as a result of domestic violence or financial hardship.
The money raised from this event will go to assist the vital work carried out by the Community Foundation of Northwest Sydney, Hills Community Aid, The Lisa Harnum Foundation and Give and Take.
Please consider participating or alternatively sponsor me (all tickets/donations are tax deductible) to spend the night roughing it on the streets of Castle Hill.
About this event
The Hills Winter Sleep Out 2015
The Hills Winter Sleep Out aims to raise awareness of homelessness in the Hills and the circumstances such as DV, mental illness and financial hardship that can lead to individuals/families finding themselves without a roof over their head.
The Hills Winter Sleep Out offers participants the opportunity to gain an insight into what it would be like to be homeless and to rough it on the streets with only a piece of cardboard to sleep on!
This year the sleep out will be raising funds to support the vital work of four local charities including Community Foundation of Northwest Sydney, Hills Community Aid, Lisa Harnum Foundation and Give and Take. These charities work with the homeless, victims of DV and the disadvantaged in our community everyday.
All donations/sponsorship money are TAX DEDUCTIBLE.
