Orange Sky. Australia's New Free Mobile Laundry Service For The Homeless...

Every night in Brisbane alone, around three hundred people sleep rough in parks, under bridges, in doorways and abandoned buildings.
Very few if any of these folk have access to one of the most comforting things in life,
fresh clean laundry.
Lucas Patchett and Nicholas Marchesi, two young engineering students say much of the inspiration behind the project came from the song Orange Sky by Alexi Murdoch. In your love, my inspiration lies, and I had a dream I stood beneath an orange sky with my brother standing by are part of the lyrics from the song which is about helping your brothers and sisters and these values are central to this project say the two young entrepreneurs.
Teaming up Orange Sky with other services it's hoped to provide the laundry service while at the same time feeding the homeless too.
There's more about the wonderful idea here.
People helping people.
A concept that just could catch on...
