We are writing to ask for your support of the factory’s involvement in the Vinnie’s CEO Sleep out campaign.
Our Executive officer Michael Shreenan along with one of our Board Members Laura Kelly will be partaking in the event to raise money forthis worthy cause.
As charity ourselves, we understand the importance of fund-raising for causes and projects, and we strongly believe this cause is worthy of everyone’s support.
Vinnies CEO Sleep out is a national annual event that encourages Australian business leaders to Rise to the Challenge of homelessness by sleeping out for one night to raise awareness about homelessness. 2012 Vinnies CEO Sleep out is on the 21st June. CEOs and Managing Directors receive sponsorship from employees, colleagues, friends and family. The funds raised go to support Vinnies homeless initiatives across Australia.
With only nine weeks until the 2012 Vinnie’s CEO Sleep out, the first snap of cold and rain has arrived as a teaser!
Did you know that over 105,000 men, women, and children sleep out across Australia each night?
The Factory receives many enquiries from Homeless people and those that are at risk of homelessness and relies on assistance form larger organisations such as Vinnies to provide support and assistance in these cases.
Our EO also has some experience of being homeless himself in his younger years and therefore knows all too well about the struggles that Homeless people face day in and day out.
We would encourage you where possible to show you support by donating to the cause online by clicking the following link.
Or if you are a CEO yourself why not join Mike in ‘Rising to the challenge’ ?
So please show your support and donate generously together we can help Australia′s homeless
From all at The Factory Team
