Why Alexander Charlton is Sleeping Outside

My name is Alex Charlton. I’m sleeping outside to raise awareness of youth homelessness and raising funds to help fight and prevent this tragedy. In April, the homeless count found that there were nearly 700 youth (age 13-24) homeless in Metro Vancouver. Thousands more experience episodic homelessness and are considered precariously or inappropriately housed. According to Raise the Roof, over 35,000 youth experience homelessness throughout the year in Canada. Family conflict, addiction and mental health issues were cited as the biggest reasons individuals found themselves homeless. By making a donation to me, you are continuing Youth Unlimited’s active and prevention work with homeless and vulnerable youth, providing tangible health, caring support and a way out. I’m giving up one night, so these youth can have a lifetime. Please support me with your donations!
