BACKPACK BED FOR HOMELESS
Did you know up to 21% of Australia’s street sleeping homeless have suffered hypothermia, frostbite or trenchfoot?
Are you aware up to 80% of families and 60% of individuals will be turned away from emergency shelters, every night?
For the past eight years, I have chosen to give back within my business model, to help create social change. The cause closest to my heart, is homelessness.
Backpack Bed for the Homeless produce award-winning Beds that help provide dignity and protection for fellow Australians doing it tough on the streets. Every time I list and sell a home, I choose to donate a Backpack Bed to help someone in need.
VINNIES CEO SLEEPOUT
Every year, I also choose to raise money and awareness for this cause by participating in the Vinnies CEO Sleepout. One night of the year, leaders in business, community, and government will sleep without shelter to help change the lives of Australians experiencing homelessness.
“This experience has really humbled me, and I feel even more committed to helping where I can.” Geoff Grist
