Rough it to help tackle 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 24 or 48 hours. 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.
