Lifewise has been working its collective rear off to help support our young homeless. They've been building solid partnerships to ensure the solution to helping people is broad-based, not a Band-Aid. I believe in this approach.
This is my fourth Big Sleepout campaign. The work goes on, so I will too.
To everyone who has supported Lifewise's work through my previous fundraising campaigns: Thank you, thank you, thank you. I'm reaching out to you again. To those who haven't supported me, or any "rough sleeper" before, then I encourage you to make a start with me in 2017. You don't have to give everything while I spend July 6 sleeping outside on a patch of cold concrete, but the something you give could well mean everything to someone at the other end.
Maybe even someone you know.
