Last month, Keeva participated for the third consecutive year in the Vinnies’ CEO Sleepout.
The Sleepout raises much needed funds for Vinnies’ homelessness services across Australia because everyone deserves a safe place to call home.
The Australian Bureau of Statistics has found that over 116 000 Australians are currently experiencing homelessness (a number that is likely much larger now due to COVID19). Of these, 60% are under 35, and 13% are under 12 years old.
This year, due to the restrictions of COVID19, the Sleepout went online.
For one night, Keeva took to her backyard to sleep outside in the cold as part of an eye-opening experience to raise awareness and bring home the harsh realities of homelessness.
Just one night may not seem like a lot, but it can make a huge difference to thousands of Australians facing homelessness – and we are proud to announce that Keeva was able to reach her fundraising target of $2000.
We’d love to say a huge thank you to everyone who showed Keeva their support and donated. Your generous donations have gone directly towards crisis accommodation, food, healthcare, employment, counselling, and support for homeless Australians.
