Why Skye Williams is Sleeping Outside
This year, I’m sleeping outside in order to experience something of what youth and kids who sleep on the street deal with on a daily basis. I want to be able to better understand the hardships of homelessness, and to be able to raise awareness and hope for those who have no other option. I know that by sleeping outside for one night with others I will be safe, and be able to go home to a warm house the next morning - a luxury the youth I’m supporting don’t have. It’s an extremely small sacrifice to make, but I hope that by experiencing this I will have a better understanding of the difficulties experienced by the youth I work with who live on the street, and a deeper appreciation for the blessings I have.
