A night under the stars for a cause

When: Monday 18th or Tuesday 19th (Depending on the weather)

Why am I doing this?

Coronavirus has been really bad globally as you guys all know. However, the biggest impact Coronavirus is having currently, is economically, whereby people are losing their jobs and falling into poverty. Already Melbourne struggles with homelessness, but this issue will worsen in the coming months as the true impacts of Corona set in. For the past few nights, I’ve been sleeping under the stars, the full moon has been awesome. I thought, what better way of raising awareness for the homeless than by sleeping outside just like them.

What you can do?

Now I realize not all of you have a swag or a tent at home so sleeping outside is not a possibility for all. If you have a swag or tent then go for it, go ahead and sleep outside. If not but you still are dying to take part, you can simply sleep on a mattress somewhere in your house other than in your room. The most important thing out of this of course, even if you do not want to take part in the sleep out, is to donate to the Big Issue.

The funds on this go fund me page will be donated directly to the Big Issue. 

Where the money will go?

The money will go to the Big Issue. The big Issue is a non for profit social entreprise which helps out homelessness and poverty in Melbourne. The organisation provides programs to assist people in finding their way out of poverty. I’m sure your donations will be greatly appreciated.

How to get yourself set up?

To get yourself set up simply get your swag, mattress or tent ready and enjoy. Look up at the stars if it’s a clear night. I promise you will sleep better than you think!

Enjoy it,

Sam
