Vinnies' CEO sleepout 2013

29 May 2013 Article

With more than half of all homeless people under the age of 24, homelessness disproportionately affects our children and youth. As Shadow Minister for Education, I care deeply about ensuring our children get the best possible start in life.

The Vinnies’ CEO Sleepout is a wonderful campaign that raises awareness on this very issue.

This is just a small part of the work that the St Vincent de Paul Society does to support the most needy in our community.

The $13 million this event has raised since 2006 has helped provide invaluable support to homeless people right around Australia.

I am very proud to be taking part in the Vinnies CEO Sleepout this year, and I encourage you to dig deep to support this important cause.
