How it works
1. Register & create a profile
Register on the website as a sleeper. To confirm your registration you donate $8 once to the Sheltersuit Foundation. The goal of participating is to create awareness about homelessness within your network and raise money to take action.
2. Fundraise within your network
Make it count. Raise money so that we can provide immediate shelter to everyone forced to sleep outside. Each Shelterbag costs $60, if you raise $300 you can give 5 people warmth, protection and dignity.
3. Lose sleep over it
The real challenge: sleep one night, 8 hours, outside. You are free to choose your own location. Find a spot where you can safely sleep out. If you are in the city with no access to a safe outside area: recreate a space on the floor, in your closet, in your kitchen…get creative with it. The idea is that you simulate an experience that it will be difficult to sleep, just like people experiencing homelessness encounter.
4. Share the love, and challenge your friends
150 million are suffering from homelessness, so we need a movement to create an impact. Invite your friends to do the same, so we can raise awareness and money.
