CEO sleepout

"On Thursday 16 June 2011 nearly 1000 business leaders from around Australia slept rough for just one night to experience first-hand what over 100,000 Australians experience every night."

I accompanied my partner John, who was standing (or sleeping?) in for Clover. it was a great night, with lots of people getting a small idea about the difficulties homeless people face. While we were aware of the cold, noise/light issues and how hard the ground is to sleep on, we were very safe and dry.

Congratulations to the St Vincent de Paul Society for creating such an innovative idea! And thanks to all the people who donated to the cause - the main purpose behind the evening. You have helped the society to raise more than $4million dollars!!
