Sample email subject: Will you take the Virtual Sleep Out challenge with me this October?

Hi X / Dear X,

On Friday 1st October, I am giving up my bed and usual comforts for one night in support of vulnerable individuals and families facing homelessness during this critical time of need.

Will you take on the challenge too? Join forces with family, friends or colleagues, or go solo and spend the night in your back garden, tent, garden shed or office carpark. Surrender your usual comforts, swap your bed for a sleeping bag, and tune in on the night for a programmed schedule of entertainment and insightful content for all.

100% of funds raised will go directly towards Galway Simon Community’s vital Homelessness Prevention Services here in the West.

The fear and trauma of having nowhere to sleep is a stark reality for some, and Covid-19 continues to pose an even greater challenge to those who don’t have the security of a home. So far this year, Galway Simon have already seen an alarming rise in the number of households needing their help. As high rents and a severe lack of affordable accommodation continue to drive people into homelessness, they are hugely concerned about even more challenges ahead. They urgently need our help to ensure that they can continue providing vital services to those who are living with the threat of homelessness.

Get your hot cocoa and flasks of tea at the ready, pack yourself into your warmest sleeping bag, we’re in for a jam-packed night on October 1st. Take the challenge, join the experience, and make a difference! Register now at!

If you can’t take part but would like to donate to my page, you can do so here: [IDONATE PAGE LINK]. Thank you for your support.

I look forward to creating an inclusive and exciting event with you. Let’s end homelessness in the West. See you at the Sleep Out on October 1st!

Yours Sincerely,
