Help us help the homeless!
This year myself (Jason Myers) and Yvan Boisjoli, will be sleeping on the streets of downtown Winnipeg to raise money and awareness of homelessness in Winnipeg. The money raised will go directly to creating employment for the homeless. Roughly every $100 raised pays for one full day of work, and supplies needed. Clothing, boots, supplies etc... It helps take the financial burden and risk off some of the local businesses and creates an opportunity for a job that might otherwise not have been possible.
We would be extremely grateful for any donations that our friends, customers or partners can contribute. Even it's just $10, $20 or $50. What you spent on lunch today, could help change one person's life!
If you make a donation let us know in the comments below, or tweet us at @bold_apps and let us know. We'd love to say thank you!
For over 3,000 people, a night out on the street is an unfortunate reality. On September 24, 2015, we will be joining Winnipeg CEOs, community leaders, and members of the media to help raise awareness about homelessness, and to deepen our own understanding and tolerance.
Strategic investments in housing and employment can give hope for the homeless. We’ve seen this happen. Over the past several years, monies raised from the CEO Sleepout has helped to stabilize housing for those at risk and provided over 51,000 hours of employment for 137 individuals experiencing homelessness.
We're excited to participate in this year’s event as a sleepout participant. We're thrilled to be part of this cause and to work with organizations to build a strong community.
