Hangout for the Homeless - 20 September 2014
Hangout for the Homeless is the first family sleep out in Australia and is an initiative of Kids in Philanthropy (KIP). Our sleepout aims to raise awareness and funds for organisations that support homeless teens and young people in Melbourne.
Families will be “sleeping out” indoors at The Deakin Edge (heated and secured), Federation Square on Saturday 20 September and will be sponsored by family and friends to do so. Families are asked to assemble at The Edge at 5pm for activities, information sessions and dinner! Please bring a sleeping bag and warm clothes.
Registration cost is $60 per family. Please send this link to your family, friends and colleagues to ask them to sponsor you.
This year, we are raising funds for Whitelion’s Nutrition Outreach Support and Health (NOSH) van. This van visits various locations each week offering meals and support to at risk and homeless young people aged between 12-25 years.
KIP is a sub fund of the Sydney Community Foundation. It aims to grow the culture of giving and doing in Australia by engaging kids and giving them opportunities to learn and develop as young philanthropists and changemakers. Kids are empowered as changemakers by participating in opportunities to help other kids.
