Dear fellow Gold Coaster
This year I am taking part in the CEO Sleepout on the Gold Coast to help people like Trevor. Now I understand there is no shortage of causes to support and that people are doing it tough however if you can find it in your heart to support me in my quest to raise $5,000 I, people like Trevor and Vinnies would forever grateful.
To support me for $2 or more go here: www.ceosleepout.org.au/donate type in Jaffaman Eddie and support with me whatever amount you can.
All the best
Trevor grew up on a farm and spent his life working with cattle and livestock — until he contracted Q fever. This debilitating illness left Trevor unable to work. As a result, he lost everything.
When in the hospital seeking treatment, Trevor was referred to Vinnies and provided with a safe place to stay until more permanent accommodation could be found.
However, more challenges were to come.

With the aid of The Story Boxes, we have brought Trevor’s story to life in a three-part webisode series.
Help me and us reach our $250,000 fundraising target by sharing Trevor’s story and encouraging your colleagues, friends, and family to support me and donate at www.ceosleepout.org.au/donate.
