The majority of us take it for granted that we have a warm bed to go home to at the end of the day but every 18 minutes a household in Scotland becomes homeless. Luckily for our team they will only be sleeping outside for one night, but for many this is an everyday struggle.
The event, organised by Social Bite, will raise awareness of the growing issue of homelessness. Although our team are taking part in Edinburgh there will be 50,000 people joining in with Sleep-Out events all over the world in a bid to end homelessness.
All money raised will be governed by the charity The Wold’s Big Sleep Out Trust, with 50% of donations going to Social Bite and 50% going to global charities that help people who have lost their homes due to conflict, violence, natural disasters & poverty.
If you’re looking to take part but can’t make it along on the night, Social Bite are encouraging others to host their own Sleep Out events at home in the garden to get involved with the fundraising!
