Because sleeping rough is tough



Feb 26, 2016

Your school can change the world!

Have you ever seen a homeless person on the street on a cold, wet, night and wished you could do something to help them?

Well now you can!

Register your school for a sleep over and raise funds for Street Swags’ SWAGtember fundraising campaign! Get you friends, family and school community to sponsor you to sleep out of your bed for those who don’t have one. Sleep in the schoolyard, school hall or even the library.

By becoming a “School Swaggie” during September and October you can make a real difference to people experiencing homelessness in Australia. All funds raised are donated to Street Swags to provide basic shelter in the form of a specially designed light weight water proof swag.

Every $80.00 raised provides one swag for one homeless Australian.

SWAGtember is a great opportunity for young people who for want to help others their own age. Over 42% of Australia’s homeless people are under 24 years old.

Street Swags will provide school kits with suggested activities to maintain the fun levels during the early hours or the morning and a visit from a Street Swags staff member during your event.

Can’t have a sleepover at your school? What about a dance marathon, or a fundraising barbecue? How about swimming laps of the local pool or lifting weights? There are lots of ways for School Swaggies to make a difference.

In addition to spot prizes each week, schools will also be in the running to win the SWAGtember Trophy for 2017.
