About the Campaign
I am aware of my own privilege but I think participating will give me good perspective for it and how it would feel to be homeless. I know a lot of people who have had lived experience with homelessness and it is heartbreaking.
I have wanted to participate in the sleepout with Nat for the last few years but had little kids at home but now my kids are old enough to leave at home with their dad. I’m also inspired by my friend, Amanda Pearl, who is participating in the sleepout this year too.
Homelessness is a real and obvious problem that seems to be consistently ignored and should be resolved. I think this is a good way for me to start to help and contribute. My participation would raise awareness amongst my friends and family and create a talking point. I have some idea of what happens from speaking with others who have done the sleepout.
