I am doing the CEO Sleepout® again this year

On Thursday 20 June, I will make a stand and join hundreds of business, community and government leaders who will be spending the longest and coldest night of the year sleeping on the concrete outside the Brisbane Powerhouse as part of the Vinnies CEO Sleepout® 2019 to raise funds and awareness to address homelessness in our community.

More than 116,000 Australians, including almost 22,000 Queenslanders, experience homelessness every night and 32 per cent are children. That’s not a reality I’m comfortable with.

Last year, a record 6.9 million dollars was raised to help break the cycle of homelessness and poverty in Australia, which made a huge impact. That's:
  • 1,949,673 support programs;
  • 689,819 beds; and
  • 1,590,554 meals.
Help me fight homelessness this year by donating at: https://www.ceosleepout.org.au/fundraisers/brad-skelton-depth-industries/brisbane

I am striving to raise $5,000 to help the St Vincent de Paul Society Queensland (Vinnies) provide support to people in crisis. This money will go towards crisis accommodation and affordable housing solutions for families and individuals at risk of homelessness, food vouchers for people who would otherwise go without food, and personal care packages containing everyday essentials.

To reach my fundraising goal, I need your help. Donations are tax deductible and can be processed online.

Thank you for your support. I will keep you updated on my fundraising progress.

All for now,
Brad Skelton
