As you know, tomorrow Byte Night will finally be here, with thousands of people from the IT industry sleeping out to raise money for youth homelessness. Dell has over 30 sleepers participating, who will be braving the weather (we're praying for a dry night!) and sleeping outside.
The event is hoping to raise £1 million tomorrow and fundraising is going brilliantly for Dell so far, with you having raised $10,728!
Byte Night began 16 years ago when 30 individuals from the IT industry slept out and raised £35,000. Since then the event has grown to over 1000 sleepers taking part each year, raising over £950,000 in 2012 alone across the UK. On the 15th anniversary in 2012 Byte Night has now raised an amazing £5.2 million since it began in 1998. This year, we're hoping to break the £1 million mark.
Thank you to everyone who has donated, and good luck to all of our Dell sleepers!
