Through the campaign, we hope to invest the money raised to help homeless people locally and throughout the world. 

Helping Homeless People in Your City

We hope to invest significant funds in thousands of local homelessness organisations throughout the world.

We are working with a range of local charity partners who work to address homelessness in their cities. Homelessness in the west is currently at crisis point and is getting worse. Sleeping on the streets is extremely damaging to people’s mental and physical health. At least fifty percent of people sleeping rough need support for their mental health. Homelessness charities need the public’s help to reach out to the increasing number of people on the streets.
