Surviving the CEO Sleepout at temperatures below 2 degrees
Last Thursday was cold. Very cold. It got to around 2 degrees. Luckily there was no rain.
The sleeping bag given to me for my birthday by my staff really came in handy. During the evening, we heard tales of how the homeless in Canada have it even tougher sleeping in the snow.
We are indeed a lucky country, but the luck does not extend to everyone. Homelessness is on the rise. We are lucky that there are leaders of industry that have the heart to get involved in fund raising for this event.
I raised just over $18,000 this year and was ranked 12th out of a total of 109 CEOs in WA.
WA raised a total of $756,000 while the CEOs in the whole of Australia have raised a total of $5 million this year.
It was again a good experience and it has ingrained in my mind and heart how fortunate I am.
Till I blog again, good night.
