Kevin Rudd joins Brisbane’s CEO’s and community leaders to experience homeless life for one night as part of the Vinnies CEO Sleepout. This is the third year in a row the Prime Minister is “roughing it” to draw attention to the need of Australia’s homeless. Of course we had to have a chat with this charismatic politician.
We also met an inspiring man, Gary Poole, who knows all too well the many challenges life on the street has to offer. Gary was himself homeless as a 14-year-old youth, but is now running a successful boutique bed-and-breakfast business at Mt Tambourine.
This is such a good charity event. They raised more than $774,000 for the society’s homeless services in Queensland!!!
Have a look at our video from this cold night under the stars.
