BENEFITING: FLEECE & THANK YOU

EVENT: 2016 CNN Heroes

THE STORY:

Nicholas Marchesi, 21, believes that having clean clothes is a basic human right. So in 2014, he and his best mate founded Orange Sky Laundry, Australia’s first free mobile laundry service for the homeless. As Executive Director, Marchesi and his team help erase the social stigma Aussies “sleeping rough” face by raising their health and hygiene standards and creating genuine community connection. To date, the nonprofit has washed nearly 300,000 pounds of clothes for the homeless in 12 cities across Australia.
