Northern Hills Christian Church in Brighton, Colorado, will host the second annual Cardboard Campout for the Homeless fundraiser in conjunction with this year's HeavenFest (http://www.heavenfest.com) event.

The Cardboard Campout for the Homeless is an all-night experience that helps to raise money and awareness for the homeless of Denver. The Campout aims to expose and immerse participants in the very harsh reality of homelessness. During the Cardboard Campout participants fast and pray, while sleeping outside all night on just a piece of cardboard. All donations raised by participants go to benefit Denver Mayor, John Hickenlooper's Denver's Road Home campaign.
