Green Sleeping Bags for the Homeless, A Passion Project

Organized by: Sacha Greenberg

THE STORY:

  • I am a soon to be 7th grader, who is wanting to help homeless people. Whenever I see a homeless person on the street, I wonder to myself, what do they do all day? I feel bad for the homeless because they either can't find work, or physically can't do work. Homeless people's lives are way different from ours. They're like nomads, wandering around a city. They majority of homeless people have no way of telling time, so their day is endless, and even worse they're bored. I need the money to bring a non-profit company to NYC, Street Sleeper (http://www.streetsleeper.org/). This company takes old billboards, that were going to be thrown away, and converts them into sleeping bags for homeless people who are cold, and need a portable bed. They saved 6-8 tons of billboards from landfills, and the bags are insulated from wind and rain. Right now there are about 60,060 homeless in NYC, which is growing significantly. I may not be wiping homelessness off the planet, but I am showing care and humanity to the underprivileged. 100% of this money will go towards buying 100 sleeping bags from Street Sleeper, that I will distribute in shelters, and on the streets. So, please help me help them. Thanks. A bit about the Sleeping bags: - the bags are made in Cape Town, South Africa - the bags are cut and sewn by four homeless people - each bag weighs five and a half pounds, and is spacious enough to fit the homeless person's belongings inside - the bags can fold into a backpack, and are made of P.V.C.
