Sleep Rough on Saturday 5 August 2017

To raise much needed funds for homeless youths in Australia

What's this all about?

Hangout for the Homeless is an annual fundraising event run by Kids In Philanthropy (KiP). Hangout for the Homeless is in its 5th year and to date we have raised over $100k for youth homelessness in Australia.

On Saturday 5 August 2017 – we are asking you to sleep rough to raise much needed funds and awareness for homeless youths in Australia.

This year, KiP is thrilled to announce that all funds raised will be donated to the Lighthouse Foundation. Our aim is to raise $25,000 to keep 10 homes warm this winter for youths experiencing homelessness. Help us get there!

For over 25 years Lighthouse Foundation has successfully supported over 800 young people to break the cycle of homelessness. Lighthouse provides homeless young people from backgrounds of long-term neglect and abuse, with a home, a sense of family, and around-the-clock therapeutic care that is proven to work.

How does the night run?

Hangout for the Homeless is a night where we ask kids and families to sleep rough. Sleeping rough for this event means no sleeping in a bed! Participants can be as adventurous and creative as they feel…. Perhaps a tent in the backyard or some cardboard on the floor…. Perhaps a sleep-out at school and getting entire year levels involved…. all we ask is that people get into the spirit of things and raise awareness and funds for the children and families who do not have a safe and secure place to sleep at night.


On any given night in Australia….
44000

Over 44,000 youths will not have a secure and safe place to sleep

402

402 Children under the age of 12 will be sleeping rough
