Jon Owen

Valentines Day 2024

This fundraiser is part of the "Donate a Plate" campaign.

Together with other fundraisers and generous donors, we’ve raised $280,611 so far!

This Valentine's Day, get ready for a sight you won't forget!

Watch out Kings Cross, because CEO and Pastor of Wayside Chapel, Rev Jon Owen, is redefining romance in the most undie-niable way. In a daring display of love, laughter (and a little lunacy), he's set to saunter through the streets with his undies proudly on the outside! 

Butt this brief escapade isn't just about making a bold fashion statement.  

Rev Jon is on a mission to raise $25,000. He's dropping drawers for dollars, all to support people experiencing homelessness or in crisis.  

So don’t be a panty-pooper! Sponsor Jon’s outside-the-box (or should we say outside-the-undies) endeavour. Your donation will be the ultimate support garment, providing clean pairs of undies, hot showers and toiletries to those in need.  

Together, we can make sure that this Valentine's Day, love isn't just in the air; it's strutting down the street in its undies!

Thank you to my Sponsors
