Yu li sleeping as a homeless coach to raise funds for the homeless

Dear readers

Yuli took a challenge from her lawyer friend to sleep as a homeless person to raise funds for the homeless.

Raymond Tan has been taking part in the CEO Sleepout for over 5 years.

The Sleepout takes place at the WACA grounds.

Yuli slept out on 18 June 2015.

However she managed to raise over $4000 from her friends and supporters.

The funds are used by Vinnies to provide accommodation and help to the over 100,000 homeless people in Australia. Yuli was ranked in the top 50s out of 106 CEOs who took part last night.

She hopes to take part again next year and raise even more funds.
