STATEN ISLAND, N.Y., Feb. 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Chelsea Financial Services has become a sponsor for "SleepOut," The Lord's Place 13th annual event to raise funds and awareness to help break the cycle of homelessness in Palm Beach County, FL.
John Pisapia, President of Staten Island-based Chelsea Financial, first heard about this unique event through his Marketing Director, Barry Lippold. "I have multiple Financial Advisors based in South Florida, including Lake Worth," stated Pisapia. "When I found out that the event was designed to create mindfulness about homelessness in addition to raising funds, I just had to step in and support the cause. I want to encourage other South Florida companies to participate in SleepOut; It's an amazing event that can be utilized as an excellent and affordable Team Building exercise."
"There are so many amazing facets to the event, including activities for the kids, BBQ, live music and a beautiful mission program," added Lippold. "It's quite remarkable what The Lord's Place does for the homeless on a daily basis, but this event really brings the meaning home to every participant by taking their home out of the equation – just for a night; It really brings all of our neighbors together."
"SleepOut" also has a "SleepIn" version of their event where participants who can't attend the event can still participate in fundraising to support their most vulnerable neighbors.
Meredith Fontenot, SleepoutTLP.com's Webmaster, explains the online fundraising aspect of the event: "Just like a walk or run, participants go online to create teams or participate as individuals to SleepOut/In. Online tools make it easy to get donations via social networks to support their participation. Registrants can sign-up in minutes and begin their fundraising right away by sharing their customized fundraising pages via social media."
Anne Noble, Chief Advancement Officer of The Lord's Place, adds: "All of the funds raised via SleepOutTLP.com help us fund the mission of the agency – to break the cycle of homelessness for each individual or family who walks through our doors. The programs we have help people find homes, jobs, and a purpose in life."
DonorPowered, a WordPress plug-in that powers the SleepOutTLP.com website, was developed for The Lord's Place via a Social Enterprise created by Barry Lippold of Nth Degree Group. A percentage of all sales of licenses of the software is given back to The Lord's Place: "They were instrumental in helping my team envision this amazing software. By creating it with and for a non-profit, we were ensured of developing software that really met the needs of all types of event fundraising."
