My story

[p]On March 8th I will be sleeping rough to raise funds and awareness for the YMCA’s Sleep Easy campaign.[/p][p]The money raised goes to the Moving Forward fund which helps service users to Move Forward with their lives. It helps to buy practical things when then leave the YMCA, get the right outfit for interviews for jobs or university, or helps them with their emotional well-being. It will help change the lives of so many when homelessness is such a growing issue in the Black Country.[/p][p]How your donation can help:[/p][p]£15 could pay for tranportation for a young person to a job interview[/p][p]£25 could pay for vital counselling for a traumatised young person[/p][p]£40 could provide 40 hot meals for homeless users of The Glebe Centre's Night Shelter[/p][p]£100 could provide a week's emergency accommodation for a vulnerable young person[/p][p]£500 could provide a residential training course to build the confidence & skills of a young person[/p][p]I took part last year and even though I was freezing cold and barely slept, I am raring to do it all over again this year. It is only one night out of my year and the least that I can do to help when others face this awful situation every day.[/p][p]It’s not too late to sign up yourselves and take part, but if that’s not possible, please sponsor me xx[/p]
