Are you a morning, evening or morning & evening shower person? How lucky are we to ask and answer that question?! Well we can tell you... you are one of the 47% (2015, globalcitizen.org) of people in the world that are lucky enough to experience this form of sanitation each & every day. How insane is that...nearly half of the world's population don't have access to a shower or decent handwashing facilities. So why are we talking about showers…. To bring thoughts of gratitude to your mind, and to share with you our very first beneficiary of our $1 per sale donation for this season.
Say Hello to OrangeSky Australia who is showing to us just how important clean clothes, a warm shower, and connections are.
OrangeSky Australia was born in a Brisbane garage in 2014 by two mates, Nic Marchesi and Lucas Patchett. “What started as an idea to improve hygiene standards and restore dignity to people doing it tough has evolved into something much bigger and more powerful.”
OrangeSky Australia is the WORLD's first free mobile laundry and shower service for those who are homeless. “Our volunteers also spend their time positively connecting with our friends on the street through genuine and non-judgmental conversation.” This is honestly such an amazing organisation, built on a simple concept, but makes such a difference to so many aussies lives. Hence, we are choosing to support OrangeSky Australia which at the end of winter will receive a $1 donation per sale, all thanks to you and your purchase.
To find out more about this incredible organization check out their website, https://orangesky.org.au/ , and feel free to join them in their Sudsy Challenge 2021.
This is also a great place to start, if you are new to or struggling to think of 3 things you are grateful for in your WBH Gratitude Journal. Sometimes the best things to be grateful for are life’s most basic and simplest needs, like a shower, clean clothes, genuine connections & a safe space.
Thank you, for those of you who have made a purchase.
Thank you, OrangeSky Australia for all you do.
