On Thursday 21 June, Panthera Finance’s CEO, Marcus Raward, will sleep out on the longest night of the year on the cold, hard concrete of Brisbane’s Powerhouse as part of the Vinnies CEO Sleepout® — an annual event raising much needed funds and awareness to address homelessness in Australia.
For Marcus, it is one night of discomfort, but for more than 116,000 Australians, including more than 22,000 Queenslanders, homelessness is a constant reality.
Marcus is striving to raise $10,000 to help the St Vincent de Paul Society Queensland (Vinnies) provide support to people in crisis.
“I’m proud to participate in Vinnies CEO Sleepout® because I believe in encouraging our staff and clients to give back to the community” Marcus said.
“We strongly believe in raising awareness of the issue. At Panthera Finance we deal with people experiencing enormous hardship on a daily basis so this is closely aligned with our core values.”
St Vincent de Paul Society Queensland CEO Peter Maher said the issue of homelessness is far more widespread than most people think.
“The issue is very real for many people — one in eight Queenslanders live below the poverty line and most Australians are just two pay days away from being without a secure place to live,” Mr Maher said.
“The Sleepout raises awareness of the harsh realities and relentless daily challenges faced by people experiencing homelessness — real people who are no different from you and me.
“The fact that 116,000 Australians have no place to call home is devastating. Even more so when you learn 32 per cent are children.
“This reality cannot continue.”
Funds raised at the Vinnies CEO Sleepout® enable Vinnies to provide vital services to people experiencing homelessness.
Vinnies provides emergency accommodation, advocacy support, budgeting services, living skills programs, emergency relief, transitional housing and access to programs that help rebuild the lives of Australians living in poverty.
