StreetSleep Gold Coast
We all know it’s easier to solve problems when you work together as a team.This World Homeless Day get your colleagues together and sleep out as part of the Property Industry Foundation’s StreetSLEEP event on 10 October. You’ll help us raise funds so we can build homes for homeless youth.Our StreetSLEEP Ambassador is comedian, author and participant on Filthy Rich & Homeless, Benjamin Law. He’s gone out of his way to experience homelessness and that’s why he’s keen to do his bit.
I now know many forms of homelessness aren’t obvious or visible, like couch surfing, crisis accommodation, dossing and sleeping on overnight trains. Walk 500 metres in any direction and you'll encounter folks sleeping rough, asking for change or living out of tents in parks.It’s a problem everyone sees but most people are not sure what to do about it.This year you have the chance to make a difference, sleep out in 4 cities around Australia: Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Gold Coast.
So grab your colleagues, friends and your sleeping bags and on October 10 sleep out to raise money for homelessness.
