MunLi Chee's CEO Sleepout experience

On Friday 26 June 2015, Merit Partners organised a morning tea to thank supporters and donors who stood behind Director MunLi Chee in her participation in the Vinnies CEO Sleepout 2015. MunLi shared her experience which commenced from the time she signed up for the CEO Sleepout on 15 April 2015 to the CEO Sleepout night on 18 June 2015 at East Point Gun Turret:

‘My 10-year-old daughter and I had been privileged to be part of the 2015 CEO Sleepout experience, and I would recommend anyone who is game enough to stretch themselves to undertake this challenge. It not only raises awareness of the homelessness but also helps us experience (probably a fraction) of what the homeless go through. This CEO Sleepout experience has been rewarding yet humbling, not so much of sleeping in the rough but the fundraising aspect brings out the humility in each of us. On behalf of Merit Partners, I would like to take the opportunity to thank Vinnies for organising this meaningful event, and to all donors and supporters – thank you for your generous donations and support both in kind and in spirit.
