I love to sleep out on the streets; it is a very humbling experience.
I know that every year that I do this I sadly see more and more poor people who have nowhere to live and if it was not for wonderful charities like “Rosie’s” many of these people would go hungry.
I have participated in these sleep outs for several years and this year I even went to Sydney.
I know that all the money I raise goes directly to the homeless.
After we wake up in the morning there is always someone there to give us a cup of coffee and a sausage, sadly this does not happen for the people who really have to sleep out on the streets some of them have to raid rubbish bin for a meager scrap of food.
I am always amazed to see this in a country like Australia.
Let us hope that if we all work together we can help eliminate poverty in Australia.
I have this wonderful warm sleeping bag made by my friend Vanessa.
