Give Up Your Bed Activity

Night with the Homeless is not about pretending to be homeless. It’s a demonstration to homeless people that they are not alone.

Your bed is not an option tonight.

Tonight you’ll sleep on your floor, on the couch, in your backyard or in your school or church parking log (with permission).

Resist the temptation you may have in the middle of the night to climb into bed. Take the sheets and blankets off your bed, cover your bed with laundry, caution tape, or a sign, and shut your bedroom door.

Share a photo using #NightWithTheHomeless of your sleeping location for the night or how you have made your bed uninviting and a message to your followers of why you are giving up your bed for one night.
