Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
I am going to be sleeping out rough for a night in London as part of the CEO sleep out.
Last year my partner Karen did this and I naively thought, well that's no big deal! the truth is actually it really is! We are all so caught up in our busy comfortable worlds which include basic things that we all take for granted.
Basic hygiene essentials like the ability to brush our teeth, hair, having a shower or being able to shave, let alone having a safe place to sleep is something often not valued. It is really important to fully understand and the real consequential effects of not having these basic human rights to enable us all to help support people in the most desperate of situations.
CEO Sleepout aims to fight homelessness and poverty one city at a time. This year, the small charity I helped to found, Toiletries Amnesty, are teaming up with CEO Sleepout to fundraise and help the work we do towards ending hygiene poverty. Toiletries Amnesty support homeless shelters, women's refuges, foodbanks and other organisations across the UK and further afield, and we really need your support.
