Hi! My name is Eric and I am currently in my first year and doing a double degree in business and computer science. I used to volunteer at a children’s day camp for a few summers.
Why I am doing this:
Homelessness is a serious issue across Canada and I want to do what I can to contribute and raise more awareness about it. I also want to gain more insight into it and experience it first hand. After all, you never truly know someone until you walk a mile in their shoes, or in this case sleep a week in their place.
What will be the hardest part?
The hardest part I would say about doing 5D4H is the no technology rule since I use my laptop for everything I do. I’m probably also going to miss having a warm, good night’s sleep for a week.
