104.9 Star FM’s Ben & Kristie’s Winter Sleep Out
In Albury winter can get just a little cold.
Like most, you can snuggle under the blanket with the heater turned on full bore, but what about those on the streets? Those caught out in the rain without a home?
104.9 Star FM’s Ben and Kristie decided to do something about it.
They created their very own sleep out and took to the footpath for the night to raise awareness and funds for the 300 odd people in Albury alone, who do the same every single night.
Ben and Kristie then did an OB the next morning on the concrete patch they called home for the night.
Raising over $3,000 for the not-for-profit charity Carevan that supports the Border homeless and disadvantaged community.
Kristie also learned what a swag was, “basically it’s like a coffin?”
