A LOOK AT THE LEGACY PROJECTS CREATED OUT OF FUNDS FROM THE 2017 SHE-EO SLEEPOUT™ BY DOOR OF HOPE.

On Tuesday 8 August 2017, 57 of South Africa’s foremost female business leaders and influencers slept the night at the Women’s Prison at the Constitution Hill. Thanks to their efforts, The SheEO SleepOut was able to raise R5 414 750.42, of which R2 707 375.21 was donated to the Door of Hope (hyperlink), a safe haven for abandoned children. The Event also helped to shed a spotlight on some of the most critical challenges affecting South African women and children at present.

These aren’t just words, neatly packed to sound helpful “in theory”; these are the very real concepts on which the global movement of positive change is built.
It’s with these ideas that The Philanthropic Collection home to The CEO SleepOut is turning old world philanthropy on its head;
getting business leaders to sleep on the streets to raise funds and gain empathy for the homeless in The CEO SleepOut Event;
and sparking conversations that truly lead to worldwide action.
