Thousands of people have camped out overnight as part of a global effort to raise cash to tackle homelessness.

People in over 50 cities around the world slept on the streets to support the World's Big Sleep Out campaign, the charity said in a Saturday statement, adding that funds from the NY event would be donated to the UN Children's Fund.

Organiser Josh Littlejohn said the event would be the biggest achievement in his lifetime.

Celebrities were among the hundreds taking part in the World's Big Sleep Out in London, Edinburgh and Cardiff on Saturday night, the BBC said in a report.

After three Big Sleep Outs in Scotland, this year the event has gone global - from Times Square in NY to the central park in New Delhi.

"It seems absolutely bloody crackers right now - the rain is so heavy - but we're doing it because basically the world has a homelessness problem, it has a displaced people problem, it has refugees", Dame Louise said.

After Mr. Hart started working in the kitchen, he told Mr. Littlejohn that his brother Joe also lived on the street and needed a job.

He said this weekend's World's Big Sleep Out would fund 100 charities.

Hollywood actor Brian Cox is due to open the Edinburgh sleep out later at West Princes Street Gardens.

"It doesn't matter if you are taking part in Times Square or in your back garden with your family, by sleeping out for one night we can simultaneously express our compassion for homeless people who have no other choice and raise lifesaving funds to make a difference".

"I think I can make it through this one night, because if people can do this everyday, one night is nothing".

"We can also send a message to the world's political leaders that urgent action is required to address the human suffering that we each witness on our streets every day".

"It's not everyone's decision to end up on the street", he said.

"I'd like to encourage anyone who cares about this issue to get involved by sleeping out, in solidarity with those who have no choice".
