So one night on overly long Instagram scrolling session, I stumbled upon quite an interesting picture of a cardboard with a black hanger painted on it. After reading the caption and doing a little research, I discovered a wonderful event was going to take place in our city.
This Saturday 20th of December, Australia will host The Street Store - A pop up store that allows the community to hang up clothes for the under privileged. On the day the homeless will be given a chance to come down and help themselves to things of their liking.
The concept originated in South Africa and with its success has seen the event in cities like New York & London.
Now we all have clothes that we don't wear and this would be the perfect way to clean up your wardrobes and give to those to need the holiday season.
If you want to be involved you can bring clothing on the day or drop it off at the Free Is Better offices.
So excited to be covering the event for the blog. See you at 12pm at Federation Sqaure. Be there.
