Canberra Furnished Accommodation CEO Sleepout

Posted 18 Jun 2010 | No Comments

Last night our Director, Laurie McDonald, braved the cold to participate in the St Vincent De Paul CEO Sleepout.

Laurie raised $1,010 to support programs that assist homeless people in Canberra and the surrounding region.

Laurie says “What was very clear was that I wouldn’t survive very long as a homeless person.  By the morning I was so tired and cold that I physically felt sick and couldn’t wait to get home to my own bed.”

Thank you to everyone who contributed to this worthy cause.  Further donations are more than welcome, St Vincent De Paul have raised almost $2.5 million dollars as of this morning.  Click here for further information http://www.ceosleepout.org.au/location/ceoprofile.php?ceo=741

Laurie wasn’t alone, other local CEO’s who are friends of Canberra Furnished Accommodation included …
