Ideas and
Inspiration

Are you ready to get innovative with your fundraising ideas?

You are CHOOSING to sleep out AT HOME to help put youth homelessness to bed and we can’t thank you enough. Here’s some fundraising activities you can do on your big night ‘in’ or in the lead up to your sleepout. Remember, start your fundraising early and get creative!

Camp out in your backyard

Grab your tent and set yourself up in your backyard or brave the night under the stars!

Sleep in your car

Bring your favourite pillow and dooner and get cosy in your car. Sadly, this is a reality for so many young Victorians who have no place to call home.

Sleep on your couch, floor or balcony

You can get the whole household involved. Simply choose what part of your house or backyard you want to pitch your tent or mattress!

Wear your pyjamas to work / pyjama fashion parade

Ever wanted to rock up to work in your pyjamas? Now's your chance without leaving your house. Join your work conference call wearing your favourite pyjamas and compete in your own version of a fashion parade!

Host a special auction

Your colleagues may have a whole range of super skills outside of their role that you don't know about. People can nominate tasks, skills or services they would be willing to offer once social distancing restrictions lift. Examples could include:

  • A surfing lesson
  • Personal training sessions
  • Wardrobe clearance and fashion advice
  • Coffee to your desk - someone makes or goes out to get your morning coffee for a month
  • Auctioning a car parking spot for a month
  • Auctioning the opportunity to become a dog owner for a weekend!
  • One-on-one mentoring sessions with executives or your CEO
  • Or any other amazing services your staff wish to auction.

Remember, get creative and have a little fun!
