Support a sleeper and your gift will be doubled - Covenant House Vancouver

Support a sleeper and your gift will be doubled

Back to Blog Listing Page | | February 6, 2018

With little more than a week until Sleep Out: Young Professionals, excitement is building for the 70+ emerging community leaders who will be spending one night out on the street to show their solidarity with the over 1,100 homeless youth that Covenant House Vancouver cares for each year.

Of course, not everyone is able to sleep out on February 15. But even if you’re not sleeping out, you can still be part of the sleep out movement by making a donation in support of a sleeper. Now’s the best time to do so too, because for every Sleep Out donation made from now until February 15, 2018, Covenant House supporter, Robert Little, will match it (up to a total of $50,000!).

That means:

  • Your $50 gift becomes $100 and will provide 20 warm, nutritious dinners to homeless youth
  • Your $100 gift becomes $200 and will provide 20 days of mental health and addictions counselling for one youth
  • Your $250 gift becomes $500 and will provide drop-in access for 10 homeless youth to all services in our Drop-In Centre

Robert’s Story

At age 23, Robert Little started his own shelving business which he sold a few years later for 10 times his start-up costs. Then, at 27, he started Regency Fireplace Products, which today, produces over 200 fireplace units a day. Robert is pleased to give back through Sleep Out: Young Professionals, continually supporting youth working hard to improve their lives.
