The Lifewise Big Sleepout is a fundraiser to tackle the growing issue of homelessness in Auckland. There are more than 100 people sleeping rough in Auckland’s city centre alone, and thousands of vulnerable people living in unsafe or unsuitable accommodation.
Every dollar raised at the Lifewise Big Sleepout goes straight towards turning lives around for vulnerable Kiwis living with homelessness. The Lifewise Big Sleepout shines a spotlight on homelessness in NZ, sharing stories from real people about what life is like when you have run out of options.
Now in its 7th year, the Lifewise Big Sleepout will see over 150 influential movers and shakers giving up their home comforts to sleep rough for the night. This year we are aiming high – hoping to raise over $400,000 for our critical services. Together, we can end homelessness for good.
