Thank you to 38,771 supporters who helped 1,428 CEOs raise $5,668,847 for the 2017 Vinnies CEO Sleepout
Thank you message from Caroline Hong.
I am writing to thank you (my donors and supporters) because you are making a real difference to the lives of those most vulnerable in our community, through supporting my participation at the 2017 Vinnies CEO Sleepout by donating to the CEO Sleepout.
I am pleased that several colleague CEOs have also agreed to join me and have participated with me this year.
You are one of 38,771 supporters who have donated to 1,428 CEOs who spent one no-frills night, sleeping on a cardboard, on one of the coldest winter nights on 22 June 2017. I slept out alongside over 300 CEOs at the Sydney Cricket Ground on that very cold night!
Together, across Australia, we have raised $5,668,846.
All the money raised will help Vinnies provide essential support and preventative services to fight homelessness in Australia.
The Vinnies CEO Sleepout is an important meeting of minds, designed to focus the energy of business and community leaders on raising vital funds and awareness for people experiencing hardship.
This event is about so much more than spending one no-frills night, sleeping on cardboard, in the thick of winter.
It supports advocacy efforts on behalf of 105,000+ Australians experiencing homelessness.
It brings into focus the impact of poverty on the lives of 2.5 million+ people in our prosperous country.
As one of the 1428 Vinnies CEO Sleepout participants this year, we see the problem and are part of the solution by lending our voices, networks and resources to help.
Without your support and donations, we would not have been able to be part of the solution on our own.
For example, last year, with the support of generous donations, Vinnies provided assistance to 1,949,673 people, provided 1,590,554 meals to the hungry, and 689,829 bed nights to the homeless.
Thank you once again for your generous donation in 2017. I sincerely hope you will continue to support me again for 2018!
And perhaps you can also join me and register for the CEO Sleepout 2018 www.ceosleepout.org.au
It has been a priilege to serve abd to be oe of the NSW Ambassadors for the Vinnies cEo Sleepout event for several years. Their staff and volunteers do an amazing job every year!
With warm regards and gratitude
