The World’s Big Sleep Out!

Published:

As part of an international effort to raise awareness of homelessness Social Bite will be a beneficiary and partner of The World’s Big Sleep Out; a global call to end homelessness, taking place in December 2019.

Scotland will play its part in hosting the Scottish leg with our very own Sleep Out in Edinburgh, continuing the popular event started by Social Bite in 2016, but this time part of a worldwide movement.

The World’s Big Sleep Out will stage flagship fundraising sleep-out events in Times Square New York and Trafalgar Square London along with a target of at least 50 towns and cities throughout the world including Chicago, New Delhi, Santiago, Dublin, Newcastle, Brussels, Barcelona and Madrid.

The global campaign aims to see 50,000 people sleep out on the 7th December 2019 to raise a target of $50,000,000 for homelessness and refugee causes worldwide. Partners for the campaign include the Malala Fund, UNICEF USA and the Institute of Global Homelessness (IGH), who will be able to support a target of 1,000,000 homeless and displaced people with the funds raised.
