Hutt City - The World's Big Sleep Out
Be part of the World's Big Sleep Out New Zealand to help fight Homelessness & DisplacementWellington
Please Note: To attend the McEwan Park Petone (Only) Sleep Out on Dec 7 You must donate a minimum of $30 to the Hutt City Page. If you have donated less you won’t be able to exchange your receipt for the admission WBSONZ wristband: If you donate more then that’s OK!
On Saturday 7th December, the world will unite to help fight Homelessness & Displacement with what is thought to be the largest charitable fundraising campaign in a generation. With an aim of raising $50,000,000, The World’s Big Sleep Out, will take place in up to 50 locations around the world.
Research by the Institute of Global Homelessness shows that figures have reached a new level with more than a 100 million people homeless and displaced around the world.
All funds raised will go towards the national growth of a special homelessness charity we have chosen OrangeSky (NZ) which works face-to-face with the most vulnerable each day. They receive the bulk of what will be raised with an extra contribution we will make to the international recipients: UNICEF, the Malala Fund and the Institute of Global Homelessness.
While the Sleep Out part of December 7 in McEwan Park is for 18+, we have taken the opportunity to engage with our families and younger people by holding a FREE Christmas Concert aptly named ‘SANTA at SUNSET’ with a range of artists, bands, choirs and entertainers plus the Jolly Guy as well.
Admission to the later Sleep Out main event is simple: Register online here by donating with Givealittle (a minimum of $30) which goes to the charities. The printed/numbered receipt becomes the ticket on the day when exchanged for an WBSONZ wristband giving entry to the Worlds Big Sleep Out in Hutt City. Or you can donate and hold your own sleep out where you live.
