I wanted to write a super short but sweet post on making a difference. I’m that person who has multiple plans on ways I want to ‘make a difference’ ‘give back’ and ‘help’. I am in no position to give back as much as I would like to. Last year my cousin slept out on the street with Centre Point to raise money for young homeless people, when I found out I messaged her about wanting to join her but it was too late. This year I signed up and tonight is the night we are sleeping outside. There are a range of alternative ways for you to give back or make a difference, it does not matter that you are one person, it only takes one person to shake up the world. If one person can raise £100 then 100 people can raise £10,000, you get the idea.
So if you can please donate on my page https://sleep-out-2016.everydayhero.com/uk/sharaye. I am sleeping outside from 7pm-7am tonight, I am currently £157 away from my goal of £400 but I am really aiming to just raise as much as I can. While we sleep in our comfy duvets, lay our heads on our soft pillows and turn that heating up there are many homeless people praying that the rain eases up or that the wind softens for just one night.
My cousins and friends are also sleeping out tonight
Please don’t feel like you are too small to make a difference, start today. Thank you in advance and I hope you all have a wonderful Thursday.
