Alessandra Mariani 1 out of 200 people in the UK don't have a fixed address, and are therefore considered homeless by definition.

The number is even higher in the city of London, reaching almost 2/10 people in certain boroughs.

Most of us complain daily about London's living conditions: prohibitive rents, single-glazed windows, moldy walls and minuscule rooms. However, only few know what it really feels like to have to brave the winter on the streets, completely alone.

This is why we are getting together and sleeping rough for a night. Your donations can go a long way in providing someone in need with a roof over their head this season.

Thank you. Alessandra Mariani
