I'm fundraising for Backpack Bed for Homeless
I'm one of the twenty students from Years 7 to Year 12 who have volunteered to participate in this Homelessness Sleepover.
I will be serving meals and having conversations with local people doing it tough at this time of year.
Somerset has proudly partnered with national charity Backpack Bed for Homeless and the Backpack Beds they provide to homeless people across Australia will be purchased from money collected. It cost $110 to purchase a Backpack Bed.
Thank you for supporting my fundraising.
As a community, it is critical that we provide people experiencing homelessness with the support to rebuild their lives and reconnect. The ‘hands on’ nature of our Homelessness Sleepout will allow students to develop a deeper understanding about homelessness on the Gold Coast, allowing students to develop their empathy and provide an opportunity to take action.
