Covenant House Vancouver
Sleep Out: Executive Edition
Many of us come face to face with homelessness every day. Homelessness can look like a young person sleeping in a doorway, other times it might be someone asking you to spare some change. Often it shows itself as a shared glance from a broken soul. Regardless of how we are reminded of the need, a common feeling often resonates: what can I do to help make this better? Here is your chance to make a difference!
On November 15th, Elaine “Lainey” Lui will join executives, public figures and well connected leaders in our community will sleep outside for one night in solidarity with those youth who may face many more cold, lonely nights until they find their way through Covenant House Vancouver's doors.
Support Elaine by contributing to her fundraising goals!
EVERY DOLLAR RAISED WILL BE MATCHED by a group of generous donors!
