A London Bus
We are currently converting a London double-decker bus into a creative living space for homeless people in London with Buses4Homeless.
The bus will have 16 beds on the upper deck as well as a creative workshop and rehabilitation centre on the lower deck.
WHAT WE FUND
For every t-shirt or hoody we sell, we donate a sleeping bag to somebody who is living on the streets.
We also ran a Kickstarter campaign selling 100 tracksuits and 250 t-shirts to fund 500 sleeping bags for homeless people in London.
New Horizon youth centre was keen to partner with us and took 200 sleeping bags directly from us. The remaining 300 were distributed by 4BYSIX throughout London's homeless community.
We created a knitting pattern for people all over the country to knit hats for homeless people. The response so far has been phenomenal. We have had over 1100 hats sent to us so far knitted by people aged 9 to 96.
We handed these hats out all over the world, but the majority went to some of the 170,000 homeless people sleeping rough in London.
We create emergency warmer blankets for homeless people in the UK. The blankets would come with our limited edition crewneck jumper in the front pocket for the wearer to hand out.
We also toured England on the coldest week of 2019 and handed out the blankets to anybody in need.
In 2018 we made a t-shirt which funded a warmer pack to be donated to a homeless person. The t-shirt was limited to 80 pieces and the warmer pack received great feedback from the homeless community in London.
