One Night Stand Sleepwear: tackling youth homelessness - Virgin.com
Geege Schuman stashed this in Philanthropy
Love the idea – how does it directly support young people sleeping rough though?We exist to create awesome sleepwear while supporting young people sleeping rough. To do this, for every purchase of awesome sleepwear, we provide a meal and employment for a young person in need.
For the meals, we provide food vouchers through our charity partner here in Australia, Open Family. And for employment, we're implementing the employment services of Open Family into the running of our business. Their pick-and-pack department provides young people with a job, regular training and ongoing support from a social worker to get them back on track.
Just in Australia or will they roll out elsewhere too?
They accept international donations but looks like they will expand:
