I am leading by example!
Hello, Sleepers, Amy Maple here. Tasked with coordinating the event, I am not one to ask anyone to do something I won't do myself.
Like you, I've created my page, solicited my family and friends and am prepared to sleep out in a cardboard box on November 16. It will be cold, dark and uncomfortable, but pales in comparison to what we know over 5,000 young people in metro Detroit experience every night!
To my friends and family landing on my page, thank you for helping me reach a goal of over $4,000 raised. I still cannot believe we did it! Here I am actuallly on the pavement in what I refer to as "my very first selfie!" What do you say we make history repeat itself with another banner year? Find your way to the "donate now" button and make your impact. You will be glad you did!
