Whether it is in your backyard, your office, your school hall or even on your living room floor, Mission Australia's Sleepout is about getting your friends, family, colleagues and community to raise vital funds towards Australians in need and helping Mission Australia reduce homelessness.
Some people go to great lengths to raise money for us, but few go quite this far…
Uni students Ashton, Harry, Marcus, Will and Will raised $12,000 after competing in the Mongol Rally: an unsupported car race spanning 16,000 kilometres and 19 countries.
They chose to support Mission Australia because they wanted to raise funds for a local organisation offering a wide variety of community services, including mental health programs.
They reached their fundraising target thanks to support from generous family and friends, and extra money raised by selling Mongol Rally t-shirts. The boys had the time of their lives and came away with a heightened degree of empathy for people experiencing homelessness, after needing to rely heavily on strangers for food, shelter and mechanical support during the race.
Let's do this!
