About this Event

The World's Big Sleep Out is a global call for an end to homelessness. My name is Steve Gower, and I've been a homelessness campaigner for years, working in Gloucester, and I hope you can support Gloucester's Sleep Out to raise money for this most important cause.

The two charities I'll be supporting through Gloucester's Big Sleep Out are the Gloucester Law Centre and Citizens Advice Bureau. These two organisations have had to absorb big budget cuts over the years while continuing to provide absolutely essential services to vulnerable and homeless people in Gloucester. This becomes harder every year and they need our support.

You can either donate through the official donation page (click here) to support me Sleep Out on 7th December 2019, or you can grab a sleeping bag and join me on the Global Sleep Out that night and raise money yourself. An expected 50,000 other people throughout the world will be Sleeping out, and millions will be donating, so hit that register button and join us!

By taking part, either by donating, joining this event, or hosting your own, you can help raise enough funds to give a hand up to a target of 1,000,000 homeless and displaced people in Gloucester, the UK and throughout the world. As well as raising money and investing in charities that make a difference, we want to send a message to the world’s political leaders to enact compassionate policy and find solutions for homelessness locally and the global refugee crisis that affects us all.

We are a small, interconnected world. By collectively sacrificing our beds for one cold night we can reach out a hand of compassion and solidarity with those who need it most - homeless people on our doorsteps and refugees internationally.

Over 50,000 people sleeping out on a December night is a mandate for action. Please join the movement today. Host Your Own Sleep Outs can be held in your backyard, porch, private company grounds (with permission), or any other place that is safe and legal. All of the official events will take place across the world on December the 7th 2019, you should aim to host your event on this same date in order to join this global movement as fully as possible! For one night, let’s come together to show our determination to build a world where no one is ever left without a home.

Thank you for your support!

Steve
