Yes! I will sleep outside for you

Why do I want to sleep outside for homelessness?
I actually had a very intense experience with sleeping outside during the iPhone 5 launch for finder.com.au, where we slept outside on george street for 4 days. I personally was only out there for 36 hours straight, but I certainly learnt a lot about what its like to sleep outside.
The roughness, the cold, the harshness of other people, the dangerous people and just the sheer noise of the place. Outside, especially in the city is just so intense.
From my intense experience, I was quite moved as to the feeling of sleeping without a home. One day just after the iphone queuing, I went up to a guy who sold big issues afterwards and asked him how much his magazine was and just pulled out all of my money from my pocket with notes and coins and just gave it to him and said, "Dude, I don't really want your magazine, but just do 1 thing for me, 'Have a great night sleep tonight.'"
So, I have decided to reparticipate in something I am very passionate about.
I have actually slept outside for a range of other reasons, some are quite comical, and I would be very happy to share those with anyone who is attending the event or if you ask me.
Do you have a story to share about sleeping outside?
