GLOBAL SLEEP OUT
Swap your bed for a sleeping bag and help fight homelessness in your sleep!
On Feb 26, together with the other Philanthropic Development Organizations (PDOs) in the Spring Rain Global PDO Ecosystem is taking part in the Global Sleepout, an awareness, fundraising, and solidarity event to help the homeless and the vulnerable.
The Global Sleep Out is an offshoot of Spring Rain Global and Vincentian Foundation’s participation in the World’s Big Sleepout last 2019. The event then was held simultaneously in Manila and Cebu. It was able to raise 7,800 USD and was participated in by 960 participants. Last year, we shifted to our own brand – The Global Sleep Out for the benefit of the PDOs in the SRG Ecosystem doing various advocacies for the homeless – from building homes and providing shelters for the poor, elderly, and orphans; to livelihood, savings program, and community development initiatives; to feeding programs and soup kitchens.
On Feb 26, with your minimum donation of P500, we will experience how it is to be homeless, even if just for one night. Given the limitation of congregating during this time of the pandemic, we challenge you to not sleep on the comfort of your bed, and sleep outside or on your floor. There will be a program that will be live-streamed in the SRG and (PDO) Fb pages as we learn about the different initiatives (PDO) and the rest of the other organizations in our ecosystem are doing to care for the homeless and the vulnerable.
Rather than gather together at large venues, this year we’re asking you to sleep out “at home”. You can sleep:
- in your garden
- or an (empty) bathtub
- on a school playground
- outside a youth club
- or just somewhere you wouldn’t normally sleep
You can take part on your own, with your family or with a group, and there’s no age limit this year so everyone can join in.
Our goal is to have 5000 people sleeping out with us on Feb 26 – that is equivalent to P2.5 Million that would go to helping the HOMELESS and the VULNERABLE.
We hope that you will accept this challenge. In the Philippines alone, there are approximately 4.5 million people who are homeless. The Covid 19 pandemic with the lockdowns, economic slowdown and closing of businesses; and the devastating effects of recent disasters, like Typhoon Odette, have undoubtedly added more people to this number. Your P500 donation and your participation in this Global Sleepout will mean a lot in amplifying the need for more holistic, systemic, and sustainable interventions to solve this important development issue.
Your participation counts. For more inquiries contact Ms. Cheryl Tradio at +63 923 328 3318 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

- To provide for street dwellers within the surroundings of the San Roque Parish a facility where they can do their toilet needs, wash their laundry and have their shower;
- To create a social support to the beneficiaries among the parishioners and motivate our people to extend help for the homeless families (e.g. sponsor a family for their food, supply of detergent soap, shampoo and other needs);
- To walk with the beneficiaries in their journey of faith.
This Kapasilungan Project caters to the non-residents / voters of Barangays Subangdaku, Tipolo and Banilad. Our beneficiaries came from the provinces and do not have relatives in the city.

GLOBAL SLEEPOUT FUNDRAISERS
1) BAKHITA CANOSSA FOUNDATION PDO

We challenge participants to feel how it is to be homeless even for just one night, by not sleeping on their beds, but outside, or on the floor. Your act of solidarity and your P500 donation will really help us a lot to be able to continue our programs.
There will be a program that will be live-streamed in the SRG and Bakhita Canossa Foundation Inc. Fb page as we learn about the different initiatives and the rest of the other organizations in our ecosystem are doing to care for the homeless and the vulnerable.
2) CARMELITE MISSIONARIES (CM) PDO
The Carmelite Missionaries-PDO envisions a journey of a prayerful and life-giving community that gives witness to communion in the Church and society as a channel of blessing for the mission. Thus we respond to the present realities of the church especially homelessness through the Calamity and Disaster Relief Advocacy. In our little way, we provide food and clothing for our homeless brothers and sister whom we call “kapwa” who knocks on our door. We make sure that they leave our place not empty-handed. Moreover, we also helped the victims of calamities like typhoons who lost their houses. We also provide “pabahay” to our Indigent neighbors in Caburan Jose Abad Santos, Davao Occidental.
3) CLARETIAN MISSIONARY SISTERS (CMS) PDO
Social Services and Development Advocacy is one of the advocacies of the Claretian Missionary Sisters Philanthropic Office (CMS PDO). The programs under this advocacy are Disaster and Calamity responses through food packs, clothing, and household wares distributions to address the immediate needs of the victims and materials for house repairs. This includes victims of fire, floods, typhoon and COVID-19 victims.
When the COVID-19 hit our country or even globally, our responses and assistance to needs of our most vulnerable people has been heightened and have continued, thanks to the responses and support of our donors and the SRG Ecosystem of Good we are able to extend more help in different parts of the country and even outside like, India, Indonesia, and Vietnam. However, our activities are more concentrated in the Philippines.
4) PAGLAUM PDO
Kitchen of Hope is a non-profit initiative that works to feed the hungry, especially the homeless and most marginalized, through its Cafe/Restaurant. Patrons can purchase an extra set of snack or meal to give to those that need it but can’t afford it. It reinvests all of its revenue to sustain the Café’s operations and invites donors to give so that Kitchen of Hope can prepare more food for more people in need. Established on March 16, 2021, on the occasion of the 500th year of Christianity in the Philippines, the Missionaries of the Assumption Paglaum PDO envisions Kitchen of Hope to be a movement that will support street dwellers, rough sleepers, and urban poor and migrants who lost their homes, by providing warm meals, conversation and counseling, transient dormitory, and even employment opportunities when possible. Kitchen of Hope takes inspiration from Social Bite upon hearing about it during Spring Rain Global PDO Ecosystem’s participation in the World’s Biggest Sleepout in 2019 which was co-organized by Social Bite founder, Josh Littlejohn MBE.
5) ST. LAWRENCE DEACON AND MARTYR PARISH STEWARDSHIP AND PHILANTHROPIC DEVELOPMENT OFFICE
“Accompanying families, building homes for the homeless and the vulnerable” so goes the mission embraced by the San Lorenzo Deacon and Martyr Parish Stewardship and Philanthropic Development Office (SLDMSPDO) project ALFA. Since its inception in the late 2019, project ALFA, (Allocating Logistics for Family Accompaniment or Alagang Familia), was initially an attempt at addressing the needs of the children and the Out of School Youth for education through the “Mobile Aklatan” and the community-based children and youth formation, and, at accompanying gender-based violence and VAWC survivors.
But the project which Baras PNP through its then OIC Chief Police Lieutenant Leslie Barlis originally presented to a multidisciplinary team from the LGU, the religious and non-government sectors soon evolved into project ALFA in mid-2020 after a challenging question in one of the meetings of the multi disciplinary team was raised: “Why not help families if we were to help the children and the youth?”
Now on its third year, project ALFA has accompanied 6 families 3 of whom were through “pangkabuhayan” assistance in which a starting fund was given to each of them amounting to 30,000.00 pesos. Two were assisted in maximizing the benefits of 50,000 peso financial assistance from government and non-government agencies like DSWD Baras, Red Cross and individual donors by overseeing the construction of their homes destroyed by super typhoon Rolly. SLDMDSPDO’s project ALFA is still to assist these families to either repair or construct their homes this year through the Global Sleep Out fundraising campaign. From there the beneficiaries’ solidarity monthly contribution for the repair or construction of their homes together with those from donors can be used to repair and build the homes of the 14 more Gender-Based Violence or VAWC survivors.
