Sleep in a Box is an event designed to raise awareness in the SMU community about homelessness in the Greater Dallas Area in partnership with Vogel Alcove. The event will take place on the evening of Wednesday the 31st 2011 on SMU's campus and will consist of students forming groups of 5-10 individuals and decorating boxes. The members of these teams will then take turns “sleeping” in the box. In addition to the physical presence of students “sleeping” in boxes there will be a speaker to address these students in order to further enhance knowledge and understanding of the issue of homelessness. In addition to a box decorating contest, students will participate in other events designed to maximize student participation. The winner of these contests will receive a prize.
Entry fees for teams and donations will go to benefit The Vogel Alcove. Check them out at http://www.vogelalcove.org/
