For myself l decided to take part not only to help support the cause but to also understand the smallest crumb of being Homeless.  The event itself was great but l feel could have been a little more realistic for the general public to understand more about how the homeless survive.  The event itself was like a very small festival and l felt it took away from the purpose but l am so glad 4 million has been raised for such an important cause.  The hardest part was 3am trying my best to keep warm.  I have never felt cold like that in my life and my body physically shook.  Afterwards l was pleased l managed for the night but glad l was also able to go home.  I appreciated my life more from this experience.
