Basecamp Have Set Up A Homeless Backpack Challenge And They Need Your Help
They are trying to get 100 backpacks filled before Christmas.
This year the homeless crisis in Dublin has hit an all-time high. A heart breaking sight for all to see just so many children, adults and families out in the cold every day.
Making life a little bit easier for those effected by homelessness has been the main thought in everyone's minds, especially as it's getting colder. So the wonderful people at Basecamp, the outdoor store in Middle Abbey St who have taken the initiative to tackle this problem head on and start a backpack challenge.
The aim of this challenge is to get as many backpacks as possible filled and sent up to the Bru Aimsir service that is currently housing 100 homeless people every night in Thomas St. The backpack can be filled with items such as:
- Waterproof jackets
- Food vouchers
- Water bottles
There is, at the very least, 100 people that need essential items to make winter a little bit easier for them, so you can start the nomination yourself with your friends and family. Raise awareness of homelessness, make a video of your nomination and get tagging your mates through social media.
Let’s work together to help the homeless this winter.
