UWA Sleep for Charity

If running for charity doesn’t always appeal to you, have you considered sleeping for charity?
A collection of UWA student organisations mentioned below are building a UWA team to support and participate in Homeless for a night 2016. We are challenging students, staff, family and friends to come together and join team: UWA Sleep for Charity https://www.mycause.com.au/page/121588/uwa-sleep-for-charity
Homeless for a night 2016 is an event held by the Western Australian volunteer charity group Manna, to raise awareness and support their Hot ‘n’ Healthy meals program which provides meals to the homeless and struggling people of Perth https://www.mycause.com.au/events/homelessforanight
Participants will either:
- Enjoy a night under the stars at Gloucester Park, with entertainment throughout the night including a silent disco (alcohol free event).
- Get involved in the best way you can which may include sleeping under the stars in the comfort of your own backyard or even just on the floor of your bedroom.
Either way, you decide your level of comfort. Some will tough it out on cardboard for the night and others bring down an air bed.
To register you only need to fundraise a minimum of $39 or pay it in full yourself (before April 17th for this early bird price).
It costs $5 for Manna to provide a three course nutritious meal to the homeless and struggling people of Perth. Just by registering you are on your way to providing 8 meals to those that are less fortunate.
How many meals will you provide?
