Saturday 1 June 2019

1 night, 2 fantastic events. Give up your bed for one night or join us at Hangout Hands On to help homeless youths this winter. Register below.

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 7th year and to date we have raised over $140k for youth homelessness in Australia.

On Saturday 1 June 2019 – we are asking you to give up your bed for the night and/or join us for hands on volunteering with local organisations that work with disadvantaged youths/families.

Give up your bed

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. Registration $5 per person. Register to sleep rough here.

Where is the money going?

This year, KiP will be supporting the Lighthouse Foundation. Our aim is to raise $15,000 to support Lighthouse in keeping at risk youth off the streets.

And yes, you heard that right, KiP is the launch of Lighthouse’s 4UP Campaign. This means that every single dollar you raise will be quadrupled. $1 = $4 to Lighthouse. Our target of $15,000 will become $60,000! What are you waiting for? Sign up and start your changemaking!

Our thoughts are with those affected by the virus, particularly those who are ill. We wish them a speedy recovery, and we remain inspired by our healthcare workers and others who are caring for people around the world. To do our do our part in reducing the risk of further spreading COVID-19, KiP has cancelled all events in March and April. This was a hard decision as we would love to do more in these times, not less.

We are exploring opportunities for how we can continue to support our amazing charity partners during this time and pledge our support to unite as a community to provide for those in need of help.

Stay strong. Stay kind. We are all in this together 💙🤍💙 #kip

To our KiP community we want to reassure you that we are monitoring the situation closely in these upside down times. We will keep you in the loop as decisions are made with upcoming KiP events.

KiP provides a service to those in need. This and the health of everybody involved in our sessions will be at the forefront of our decision making.
The world is a super stressful place right now. Remember to breathe and we strongly recommend acts of kindness. Share your toilet paper. Drop a care kit to a neighbour. Donate canned food to a local shelter. Smile at people. Say thank you to the person serving you at a check out. You will feel better and so will the people around you.
