Help fund a bearable winter for our friends experiencing homelessness

$3,695 towards $3,000

This year I am taking the “48 Hours of Homelessness-Street Sleep” challenge in conjunction with Street Angels Milwaukee Outreach.

MY CAMP LOCATION IS IN NEW BERLIN, on the West side of Sunnyslope Road, just north of Lincoln Avenue. Look for my Street Angels signs.

For 48 hours, I will leave my home with nothing except for the items on my back. I am going to need your support! In doing this, you will also be supporting Street Angels’ overall goal of raising $150,000 in 48 hours. During my time away from my home, I will be looking to you, my friends and family, to help me earn my basic survival needs. My personal fundraiser goal is $2500 (stretch goal added on 10/21)

During my 48-hour fundraiser, I will receive each of these things when I reach its fundraising level:

MY GOALS:
$50=Bottled Water
$100=Sleeping bag
$200=Snack bag
$300=Tent
$500=Change of clothes/boots
$700=Book and deck of cards
$900=30-minute phone charge
$1100=Breakfast, lunch and dinner each day
$1300=Visits from friends
$1500=Visit from Mom
$1700=Hygiene bag
$1900=Use of Wi-Fi
$2000=Another phone charge
$2500=6 hour early bail out (6pm, Sunday 10/24)

$3000=STRETCH GOAL

I will also be collecting in-kind donations of these CRITICAL NEEDS: new or gently used men’s jeans or sweatpants, sweatshirts or other warm tops, and long underwear, as well as tents and body wipes.

EVERY DONATION HELPS! I will need your help to survive, and depending on the weather, your generosity could literally keep me from freezing at night! I am choosing to endure these conditions for a few days and will share my experience on social media to bring awareness to the critical needs of our homeless friends. If you would like to make an in-person donation and see my camp, I’ll be able to disclose my location and have visitors when I reach $1300 in donations.

Thank you in advance for all your support!

** PLEASE NOTE: I will leave my campsite from 6am-Noon on Sunday, 10/24 to serve at The Ridge Community Church.
