Arqus Design raised $5,349 for the St Vincent de Paul Society CEO Sleepout held on Thursday 21st June 2012. Our Director Scott Peabody joined a total of 157 Queensland CEO’s to raise a combined total in excess of $890,000 to go towards the funding of new projects for Vinnies and assisting with their provision of existing homeless services.
Nationally, there were 1,032 CEO’s that raised $5,293,440 for the plight of the homeless.
There are more than 100,000 Australians who sleep out each night of the year with half of these people being women and a quarter are under the age of 18. Arqus Design is saddened to think that so many people are homeless in 2012. The CEO Sleepout provides a great opportunity to raise awareness and funds for the homeless. You can get involved and support the Vinnies CEO Sleepout for 2013 and get behind the serious issues of homelessness in Australia.
Register now for the 2013 event which is being held on Thursday 20th June 2013 in your capital city.
