Welcome to the Personal Page of
Hello Friends and Family,
For the second time last year I did the spectrum sleepout to help raise awareness concerning homelessness in the Burlington area. There are around 1,500 people with out homes every night on average in Vermont. Of that number 172 are children around our county. After completing the sleepout again last year I realized the challenges people face for a night, for weeks, even sometimes for years. I just slept outside one night and realized how cold and dark it gets even in March with sometimes the elements being even harsher than the mild winds we experienced. After last years experience I realized how priveledged I am to just have a roof over my head, heat, food and a warm bed. I am again choosing to sleep out for the Spectrum organization. By sleeping out and raising money I am able to help spectrum. With the money I help raise, they can use it for their shelter or to buy supplies for people in need. I have personally donated $20 and would love if you could match it or donate what you can to help out. Any amount is greatly appreciated. Please find the link below to donate.
Thanks so much, Jake Kuypers
