Check out this excellent photo gallery of what happened at the CEO Sleepout 🙂
In a bid to raise money and awareness toward employment for Winnipeg’s homeless population, over 40 CEOs and other members of the community spent the night at corner of Portage avenue and Main street on Thursday, September 27.
In the second year of the CEO Sleepout, organizers were able to raise $111,645 (at time of press) according to the organizers of the event, Change for the Better. The funds raised are equal to 11,164 hours of work for Winnipeg’s homeless men and women.
CEOs, onlookers, and the media alike were on hand at Portage and Main to kick off the event in the courtyard of 201 Portage. I was lucky enough to be asked to shoot the event by a friend at the Ladybug Foundation, a local charity geared towards helping Winnipeg’s homeless population.
