A night in the cold for exposure

The Big SleepOut is a fundraiser to raise awareness and money to help the LifeWise Trust to help ease homelessness. 

The Weather in Auckland has been atrocious. I hope it is milder on June 3, the night that I will be sleeping rough with a number of other Auckland business people and public figures - everyone fundraising from their friends, family and colleagues. 

This year the focus is helping homeless youth. In Auckland 50% of all homeless people are aged between 16-24. It is a shocking statistic - those should be the best years of their lives.

Donations may qualify for tax deductions.
Collection of money is independent and securely managed by GiveALittle - a Telecom Trust project.
