How It Works

1. Raise Money & Awareness

Sign up and set up a fundraising page. Ask people to sponsor you. Discuss the issues and why we need to end homelessness.

2. Rough It

Live with no bed, one bag and under $10 a day for 1, 3 or 5 days.

3. Join the movement for change

Join a group change-makers determined to end homelessness. In a wealthy country like ours, no one should be homeless.

Rough it. Raise money. Help end homelessness

We know we can end homelessness in Melbourne, but we need your help. Take part in the Roughin’ It Challenge to raise money and show your solidarity with people who have nowhere safe to sleep.

Live with no bed, one bag of belongings and just $10 a day for one, three or five days. Ask your family, friends and others to sponsor you to complete the challenge.

The money you raise will help Launch Housing to end homelessness.

The experience you have will open your eyes to just some of the challenges people experience every day.
