World's Biggest Sleepout
On Saturday, December 7th, the world will unite to help fight homelessness with what is thought to be one of the largest charitable fundraising campaigns in a generation. For one night across 50 major cities worldwide, in backyards, hometowns and iconic locations around the globe, people will sleep out overnight in unison to create the world’s largest display of solidarity with and support for those experiencing homelessness and displacement. New York City’s sleep out will take place in the iconic Times Square where acclaimed actor, Will Smith, will perform a “bedtime story” for 1,100 participants braving the cold. 100% of the funds raised from NYC will go towards registered charities helping homeless and displaced people. Funds raised in the USA will be managed by UNICEF USA. Local NY charity beneficiaries include The Robin Hood Foundation, Breaking Ground, The Ali Forney Center, and The Coalition for the Homeless.
In New York City alone, more people are homeless now than at any time since the Great Depression, by sleeping out, you will be adding your voice to a campaign to provide life-saving funds to end global homelessness.
Venue: Times Square
