Bungalow Supply Co. - Helping people stay warm.
Organized by: Lehne Runyon
HELLO! WE ARE BUNGALOW SUPPLY CO.
Ideas start from problems, the problem - 3.5 million people experience homelessness in the U.S. each year. The other problem - 50% of your body heat can be lost with an uncovered head. The solution - give those in need something to cover their head.
Our goal is simple, we want to be able to provide a warm hat during chilly and freezing months for those experiencing financial hardship or homelessness. Starting in Columbus, Ohio and making our way across the country is the vision. Bungalow Supply Co. is a buy one-give one model based on providing beanies for those dealing with this hardship- homelessness. As if it isn't hard enough to get basic necessities - like shampoo, conditioner, lotions, tampons ( thanks Aunt Flow!) toothbrush and more, winter gear is difficult to come across, and that's where we come in.
WHY WE ARE REACHING OUT
It's time to expand! We don't believe in loans or investors but simply the good in people and that together we can make this happen. Our goal is to raise $3,000 within the month for screenprinting equipment, larger orders of beanies and apparel, and of travelling expenses when we give out donations.
We are already reaching 40 degree temperatures at night!. We are expected to donate over 500 beanies this winter in Columbus alone! Within the next two years we will be able to branch out of Columbus and make our way into other cities and rural areas of the country. Ultimately, we want this to be a sustainable social enterprise that keeps providing winter gear for the homeless, nationwide!
If its not already cool enough that we have a buy one - give one business model with our beanies, we also take everything else we sell ( T-shirts, banners, tote bags, buttons, stickers, etc.) and donate 30% (!) of our profits to local, smaller organizations that help those in need.
*This month (October 2016) we are donating 100 beanies to Star House, a youth homeless shelter located in Columbus, Ohio.
