Free Laundry Service for the Homeless

When you don't have a home, the list of difficulties goes beyond a meal and a place to sleep. Cleaning your clothing and bedding is both difficult and low priority, but cleanliness not onlly contributes to good health, but makes one feel human.

Orange Sky Laundry is two guys with a van (and some other volunteers) who go to homeless people in Brisbane, Australia, and wash their clothes and bedding. Lucas Patchett and Nicholas Marchesi, both 20 years old, founded the nonprofit just this year in order to help improve the hygiene of people with no access to laundry facilities. They hope to expand the project with bigger vehicles to serve more people, and partner with a food charity to feed those waiting for their laundry to finish.
