Night Without a Bed

Family Promise of Gwinnett is hosting our first annual “Night Without a Bed” fundraising event, kicking off on August 22nd! We’re challenging our supporters, followers, and volunteers to be willing to sleep without a bed on the night of September 12th. While embarking on this mission to sleep without a bed, you will raise awareness for the on-going issue of family homelessness within Gwinnett County, while raising funds to help us end homelessness one family at a time. Ready to get involved?!
 
Each individual will be challenged to reach the Family Promise of Gwinnett fundraising goal of $500 per participant. You can start raising funds as early as August 22nd and join in on the mission anytime during the 21 days. On the night of September 12th, we ask our participants to sleep anywhere without a bed: cars, tents, a treehouse, your living room floor, or a couch and share your experience on social media using the hashtag: #FPOGnightwithoutabed. However, if you reach the Family Promise of Gwinnett fundraising goal, by September 12th, you will gain the privilege of sleeping in your own bed AND receive a “Family Promise Keeper” t-shirt from Family Promise of Gwinnett!
 
Getting excited?! Now, don’t forget, you don’t have to participate in the 21-day challenge alone. This is a great opportunity to get your friends and family involved to fundraise with you! In additon, we are giving out awards to the TOP 3 fundraisers from each category: individuals, teams, and congregations.

We are such stuff as dreams are made on. Hopefully this helps someone get a place to sleep where they can have better dreams. William Shakespeare with a little tweak of his phrase.

If Jennifer Papadatos is willing to sleep on the floor to support this ministry the least Caro and I do is contribute to allow her to sleep in her own bed.
