Saturday 2 June 2018

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 6th year and to date we have raised over $100k for youth homelessness in Australia.

On Saturday 2 June 2018 – 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.

Hangout Hands On

It’s back changemakers! Come along on Saturday June 2 for some hands on volunteering. You will be packing, sorting and making for local grassroots organisations who work with disadvantaged youths/families. This year, you are able to fundraise for Lighthouse by attending this event.

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!

Thank you to all the wonderful #KiPsters who 'Made With Love' today for Youth Projects!

A menu of chicken (and veggie) burritos, corn on the cob, and apricot balls was prepared for 60 people to be served for lunch tomorrow: huge!

This fantastic result goes directly to support at-risk young people in our community experiencing homelessness and / or disadvantage. We can't thank our KiP families enough. ⭐️
