2012 Vinnies CEO Sleepout17 Apr 2012, Posted by News in
On Thursday 21st June 2012 our CEO Andrew Gibson spent the night sleeping out rough to raise funds and awareness for the homeless in Australia at Carriageworks Sydney.
Andrew Gibson raised a total of $13,630 donated to the ongoing provision of Vinnies’ homeless services across the country.
“One night sleeping out is no hardship but if you had no option every night then it would go from being an adventure to a nightmare few if any of us will have to encounter.”
“It is easy to slip off the rails no matter how established you become in life. As for those who are not brought up in a loving family environment with strong guiding principles they have such a slim chance to get it right. Organisations like Vinnies are instrumental in helping those less fortunate get their life back on track” said Andrew Gibson.
Over 1030 CEO’s participated in the event raising over $5,248,800. It’s not too late to make a donation using the below link:
