AMC Byte Night

Byte Night is Action for Children's biggest annual fundraiser; a national 'sleep-out' event. Each year, hundreds of people from the technology and business arena give up their beds for one night to help change the lives of vulnerable young people. In particular, Byte Night works to support some of the 80,000 young people who are homeless in the UK every year through no fault of their own. Family breakdown, mental health issues and abuse in the home are just a few of the causes which lead to many young people becoming homeless. Byte Night is one of the UK's top 20 mass participation charity events and is the largest charity sleep-out having raised over £8.4 million since the first event.
On 7th October, I have promised to sleep on the streets of Birmingham to raise awareness and (hopefully!) lots of money for Action for Children. Please give what you can — all donations are being taken by the My Donate website where 100% of your donation goes to the charity. To donate, please visit:

"A basket of ripe fruit," I answered. Then the LORD said to me, "The time is ripe for my people Israel; I will spare them no longer. 3 "In that day," declares the...
