participants from coming.
“It’s not much colder than last
year,” Carpenter said. About 500
people registered at the gate, he
said, and 150 were still there at 2
a.m. He said the numbers dwindled

hoped to get 1,000 people to partic

Carpenter said $27,000 was
raised during the event. Late dona
tions will increase that number
during the next few weeks, he said.
“Twenty-seven thousand dollars
will go a long ways to help home
less people,” Carpenter said. “I re
ally think the event is a wonderful
example of a cross-cultural event
to address the problem of
Carpenter said a nearby protest
of the event also did not affect it.
While all people are free to express
their views, he said, he thinks the
protest was misdirected.
“I think everyone should be free
on how they give, and others should
not judge on how they give,” Car
penter said.
Mike Lyman, a volunteer at the
Peoples City Mission, said he was
pleased with the money raised and

SleepOut. But he said the commu
nity still had more to do.
Lyman said some sleepers came
to the event for the wrong reasons,
but more came for the right ones.
“I’m sure there are people here
to make themselves look good or
have fun, but there are a lot that do
care,” Lyman said.

ed homeless people, and that made
him angry.
Hird said his group appreciated
SleepOut’s intentions, but criticized
its method. The money and awareness
SleepOut raised would help the home
less, he said, but the method made fun
of them.
In addition, the fund-raiser did not
provide participants with an accurate
experience of homelessness, he said.
But Hird said more than the fund
raising method needed to change.
Hird said he also wanted to see
changes in the way the money raised
by the event was handled.
The money should be put in a bank
account where transactions could be
documented, he said. A board, con
sisting of Hird, homeless activists and
homeless people, should be created to
oversee the transactions.
That way, Hird said, the Lincoln
residents would know their money
was well spent.
Hird said he had proposed his idea
to SleepOut organizers but they had
not responded.
Hird said his group was protesting
these problems.
“When you live on the street, you
don’t get catered food and a Port-a
Potty,” Hird said.
