Thank you!

We’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who rolled out the sleeping bag to help end youth homelessness in 2016. We appreciate your support, whether you attended, donated, performed, dressed up or volunteered on the night! Here is a special video we’ve put together to demonstrate the impact of Melbourne City Mission’s work which is only made possible with over $500,000 raised by our generous supporters. Looking back at the videophotos on Facebook or Flickr it seems like people had plenty of fun!

Sleep at the 'G 2016

Thursday 26 May 2016

Melbourne Cricket Ground

There are too many young Victorians who are homeless, living without shelter or a place to call home, and the unmet demand for services is increasing.

Over 6,000 young people are forced to either ‘couch surf’ or ‘sleep rough’ every night in Victoria. Homelessness is one of the most severe forms of disadvantage and social exclusion that any person can experience.

It is a frightening and traumatic experience for young people, and has a direct adverse effect on their health and well being. Sleep at the 'G is your opportunity to do something about this crisis. Get a team together and join more than 1,000 other compassionate people for a fun night at the iconic MCG.

Sleep on a cardboard box in solidarity with young people experiencing homelessness and raise vital funds to support Melbourne City Mission's life changing work. We're on a mission - let's put youth homelessness to bed.

See what Sleep at the ’G is all about!
