My friend Ngarimu Blair did this couple of years ago and I supported him.
Help end homelessness. Be part of the solution.On the 3rd of July a bunch of influential Kiwis will take a public stand against homelessness at the annual Lifewise Big Sleepout. They will be stripped of their creature comforts, exposed to the elements and given first hand insight into what it means to ‘sleep rough’.
This night aims to raise critical awareness and funds for Lifewise’s highly successful ‘no band aids’ approach to homelessness. Many lives have been and will continue to be turned around as a result.
This year (our fifth event) we’re putting a spotlight on youth homelessness. After all young people (up to 24 years of age) make up half of New Zealand’s homeless population!
