Auckland office support Lifewise Big Sleepout at Eden Park
On Thursday 20 June, Lifewise held their 9th annual Big Sleepout at Eden Park to raise awareness and critical funds to tackle homelessness.
Homelessness is a big problem in New Zealand, and for those on the streets, the situation only becomes more intense on cold winter nights. A group from our Auckland office spent the night sleeping outside on pieces of cardboard to experience a night sleeping rough, and gain an understanding of what life is like for those facing homelessness. They raised over $5,000 to contribute to the Lifewise charity. Funds raised this year will go towards wider preventative work, and breaking the cycles that lead to homelessness.
