CEO’s rug up tonight
Rhys Holleran from Southern Cross Austereo, Mark Scott from the ABC, and Brett Chenoweth from APN are preparing to rug up to sleep rough tonight.
This year the Vinnies CEO Sleepout is aiming to raise $5m, so far, with 1055 CEO's taking part, the donations are at $4m.
"I live in the middle of Melbourne and you see a lot of homeless people all the time. It is so incredibly cold when you are on the ground, and we do it one day of the year, I can't imagine how difficult it must be for homeless people."
And with the forecast for Melbourne to get down to 8 degrees with rain and wind overnight, it will indeed be incredibly cold for him. Pictured are a number of the CEO's participating in Sydney, after being issued with 'supplies' for the sleepout at Carriageworks.
