Get behind GIANTS CEO David Matthews in his second Vinnies CEO Sleepout on Thursday night.

GIANTS CEO David Matthews will participate in the Vinnies CEO Sleepout this week to raise money and awareness of those experiencing homelessness.

The Vinnies CEO Sleepout is a chance for CEOs to get a glimpse of the struggles that many people experiencing homelessness go through.

CEOs spend the night sleeping in the cold, winter weather, learning about the support services Vinnies offers and hearing first hand from people who have experienced difficulties that led to homelessness.

Preparing for his second CEO Sleepout, Mr Matthews will join NRL boss Todd Greenberg, Sam Graham from AFL NSW and Cricket NSW’s Andrew Jones in this year’s event.

More than 2.5 million Australians are living below the poverty line and more than 105,000 Australians are experiencing homelessness. Behind these numbers are real people, doing it really tough.

The Vinnies CEO Sleepout is about building stronger, more compassionate communities. By signing up to sleep out for one night, or by donating to someone who is, you too can share in this spirit of generosity.

Mr Matthews has already raised almost $4000 for the appeal with a target of $5000. Click here
