SVDP thesis sleepoutMost people working on a graduate degree thesis experience problems sleeping. Joseph Frawley, a former intern at the St. Vincent de Paul Society who has committed to sleeping out in his car for 15 weeks whilst completing his Law Honors thesis at the Australian National University, reached his $13,000 target today through the generous support of Lambert Parkhill Financial Group.

The recent edition of the Frederic’s eGazette write “Honors student sleeping rough to help Vinnies hits $13,000 target nine weeks early.”

 Joe’s Thesis Sleepout started on July 20, a frosty night in the middle of winter, and will run through to the end of his thesis on October 30 to raise awareness and funds for the Society’s Clemente higher education program.

“When I learned about Joe’s extraordinary effort via the media, I immediately gave Vinnies a call to offer our support,” Ron Lambert, Managing Director of Lambert Parkhill Financial Group, said. “I’ve done well in my business and sharing a modest part of our business success to help people doing it tough to improve their situation feels like the right thing to do.”
