Why I am doing this:
I decided to volunteer as a sleeper for the 5 Days for the Homeless campaign because it is a great way to raise awareness and funds for the youth experiencing homelessness in Winnipeg. Last year, I was one of Co-Chairs for 5 Days and I met some of the people that are supported by the campaign through Resource Assistance for Youth, the NFP of choice here in Winnipeg. The youth experiencing homelessness face severe and dangerous conditions here in Winnipeg and it is more prevalent than most people are aware. In most cases, these Canadians without shelter wind up on the streets due to many factors outside of their control. I believe that by being a sleeper I can help contribute to this amazing cause and work toward reducing youth homelessness in Canada.
