GOOD NIGHT SOUTH AFRICA
THANK-YOU!

2015 – 2018

The CEO SleepOutTrust’s (Registration Number IT000819/2015: PBO Reference Number 9300055276) goal is to receive donations from third parties in relation to The CEO SleepOut Events, to provide funding and to provide support services where required.
The CEO SleepOutTrust strives to achieve these goals while ensuring that funds are disseminated to the appointed Primary Beneficiaries with absolute transparency and accountability.
In collaboration with the Primary Beneficiaries, The CEO SleepOut™ Trust is also responsible for ensuring the successful activation of The Primary Beneficiaries’ Legacy Projects, borne out of the funds raised from The CEO SleepOut Events.

MEDIA STATEMENTS

OVER.… BUT NOT OUT!

The Trustees of The CEO SleepOut™ Trust (the Trust) have taken the difficult and heartfelt decision to suspend our philanthropic Events in South Africa for the foreseeable future.
The Trust believes that more work needs to be done to prepare South Africa as a nation for our mode of social innovation.
Until such a time, we remain committed to establishing new solutions that provide assistance to those who need it.

 2018 EVENT MARRED BY NEGATIVE PUBLICITY

The night of Wednesday 11th July 2018 saw just 12 CEO’s and their teams, together with a contingency from the media, in Rising To The Challenge at Liliesleaf in Rivonia.
Traditionally, registration for this Event ramps up dramatically in the preceding weeks.
However, this was sadly not the case this year due to the considerable unfounded negative publicity that exploded exactly a week and a half before the first of the 2018 SleepOut™ Events.

 A global call to action has seen notable South African Business Leaders, Influencers, Entrepreneurs, Students, Learners and ordinary citizens spend a mid-winter night outdoors in an effort to raise funds for selected Primary, Secondary and Satellite Beneficiaries. Participants in the movement also benefit by experiencing an ongoing empathetic commitment to change in themselves.

The SleepOut™ Movement may be Over…. But Not Out!
The Trust is ever hopeful that South Africa will evolve in line with global trends to embrace the concept of employing business strategies for philanthropy.
Hence, The Trust looks forward to experiencing a South Africa that uses social innovation as a force for change for the benefit of the less fortunate.
