Brrrrr! It's cold and miserable outside this winter in Melbourne!
I need your help .... as do those who find themselves homeless.
With the winter weather well and truly set in, it's a great time to talk about the Vinnies CEO Sleepout to help break the cycle of homelessness in Victoria.
I'm asking for donations (see link below).
Did you know that women are the invisible majority? Not only do we see more and more mature women retiring under the poverty line despite working hard for most of their career, but women are particularly vulnerable if they do find themselves in this situation.
My contribution to doing something about it is to participate in the sleepout - which means sleeping rough and cold on the cement in Melbourne with a cardboard box and a cup of soup for company.
>> DONATE: If you would like to help - you can donate to the fund. https://www.ceosleepout.org.au/fundraisers/amandablesing/melbourne
>> Or take part! Vinnies is hosting these CEO Sleepouts to raise awareness and funding all around the country. Get on board.
