Footprints has partnered with Play For Purpose to give you an opportunity to win amazing prizes while supporting our Stand Up, Step Out (SUSO) Program.
Our SUSO Program is an initiative providing mobile outreach support and services in a re-purposed council bus. The service targets vulnerable people currently experiencing homelessness and social/financial hardship in the outer suburbs of Brisbane and Logan.
On any given night, at least 20,000 Queenslanders* find themselves without a safe place to sleep or they are forced to endure inappropriate or crowded conditions just so they can have a roof over their head.
Our SUSO Program helps these people get back on their feet and on the path to independent living.

Tickets are only $10, and $5 from every ticket you buy will go directly to keeping our SUSO bus on the road and helping people get back on their feet.
