World’s Big Sleep Out: Los Angeles
December 7, 2019 @ 4:30 pm - December 8, 2019 @ 9:00 am
This unique family-friendly event at the iconic Rose Bowl will bring people together for an evening of live musical and inspirational performances, festival food and community. As the night progresses, it will slowly wind down into a series of bedtime stories read by celebrities and prominent LA notables. The audience will also be shown a video link to stories being read in other cities by well-known celebrities, including Will Smith in New York and Dame Helen Mirren in London.
Confirmed for the LA event include musical performances by Ziggy Marley, Randy Jackson and his All-Star Band, Ellie Goulding, Orianthi and a final bedtime story classic by Seth Green.
Homelessness is a global challenge that affects us all – men and women, families with children, youth and the elderly, and people with and without disabilities. Street homelessness dramatically affects health and makes it more difficult to exit extreme poverty. It occurs in nearly all nations, and has severe negative impacts on individuals and on cities. In fact, the United Nations Human Settlements Program most recently estimated that 1.1 billion people live in inadequate housing, and the best data available suggest that 100 million people have no shelter at all.
But this problem can be solved.
We know this because we can see it happening: countries and cities across the world have seen steep reductions in homelessness, and some have ended it outright.
The event is free and parking is free – but you can also fund-raise for the cause. 50% of the funds you raise will go towards a local homelessness charity in our Los Angeles community.
