On the 18th June 1300 CEOs slept out in the cold of winter in Australia, experiencing for one night what over 100,000 Australians experience every night.

Their commitment has increased the profile of homelessness and your generous support has raised crucial funds for Vinnies homeless services. Your generous donations will not only provide immediate and emergency assistance but pathways to a brighter future. There is still time to give now.

The Vinnies CEO Sleepout began as a local community venture in Sydney’s Parramatta in 2006. Since then, the event has raised important funds for Vinnies Homeless Services across NSW.

In 2010 the event was launched nationally and exceeded expectations, attracting almost 700 CEO’s in 7 cities nationally and raising $2.9 million to directly assist people experiencing homelessness.

The event has spread to England and South Africa with reports that CEO’s were overwhelmed..
