CEO Sleepout

Last Thursday, nearly 1,000 business leaders, including politicians, CEO and General Managers - and our own Daniel McKinley - took part in St Vincent de Paul's annual CEO Sleepout. They were invited to rough it for a night, in order to experience first hand a tiny part of what it is like to be homeless. 

The event raised both awareness of the issue, and some serious money - over $3 million, in fact. Daniel felt it to be a tremendously worthwhile experience, and his back can attest to just how comfortable a night on cement is. However, his back will mend, but the issue of homelessness is a constant one. But it is one that can be overcome, with sufficient will and resources. We urge all readers to get behind programs such as this, and to donate whatever you feel you can.
