Sleeping Out for Change

Southern Cross Group CEO Sam Johnson has once again taken part in the annual Vinnies ‘CEO Sleepout’ to help raise money and awareness for the plight of the thousands of homeless people struggling during these dark winter nights. More than just a networking event, this endeavour hopes to engender real empathy from those for whom homelessness is often so far from mind. Beginning as a local community venture in Parramatta in 2006, the Sleepout has now grown to become an annual event that raises upwards of $5,000,000 for charities dealing with this ever worsening issue.

Sharing his experience of the event Sam Johnson stated that he had the chance to meet Rabbi Dovid Slavin (founder and director of Our Big Kitchen in Bondi, Chaplain to the NSW Ambulance service, co-founder of Gift of Life Australia, and director of The Rabbinical College of Sydney & Yeshiva College) as well as Monika Tu – Director of ‘Black Diamondz Property Concierge’.

Each year, the St Vincent de Paul Society’s CEO Sleepout raises millions of dollars to help some of Australia’s most vulnerable people.

Sam Johnson CEO Southern Cross Group, committed to the cause of homeless and abandoned children and youth, voluntarily participated in CEO sleepout -2016, and raised funds for emergency assistance. The generous act of Sam Johnson CEO, stemmed out of social conscience, attracted hundreds of people to come forward and share their mite and paved pathways to a bright future of thousands of homeless kids. This year too, Southern Cross Group has decided to participate in the CEO sleepout-2017 to raise awareness on the minuscule yet significant section of the abandoned children and raise funds for the same.
