About the Campaign

Kids, no matter where they live in the world, shouldn’t have to sleep rough.  But sadly, even in Sydney, they do.

It’s cold, it’s dangerous and can often set off a spiral of events which are hard for the kids to escape.

I’m sleeping rough to raise awareness, and much needed funds to recruit more amazing youth workers, and to help get kids off the streets and into a safe and supportive environment.

As you know, whilst I’m OK to sleep on cardboard and in a sleeping bag, it’s the cold that scares me the most – but kids aged 11-18 years old do this every night, so it’s only a small ask.  As you think of your kids, please think of these kids too, and donate to help

    Thank you for caring enough to make a difference to our future and theirs.It takes a village to raise a child and we are failing ours.There is no discrimination in this- it can affect anyone.
