Free Sheltersuits for homeless in Milan
Sheltersuit Foundation, who is committed to keep the homeless and refugees warm while being outside in the cold, succeeds in fascinating the design world even more. Last year Sheltersuit exposed at the Dutch Design Week where many were gripped by Sheltersuit’s story. This year, Organisation in Design invited Sheltersuit to showcase their project at Europe’s most important design event; Salone del Mobilé. This is where Sheltersuit aspires to globally raise awareness for homelessness by exposing their project and by donating 100 Sheltersuits to the homeless in Milan.

Zwarte Cross and Sheltersuit join forces

Amsterdam – Rembrandtplein
The goal of the campaign is to raise awareness for people who are forced to sleep outside. As a result of a full homeless shelter or shelters with unsanitary and unsafe conditions, many see sleeping outside as their best alternative, with all its consequences. To create this awareness we got help of our sponsors Isobar, Posterscope, Clear Channel, JCDeceaux and Exterion Media. We confronted the Netherlands with the problem by placing 3500 posters at bus stops and other places throughout the country, raising awareness for the extreme conditions that a lot of homeless people have to endure whilst living on the street. Part of the campaign is that people can send a text message to donate three euros. We were thrilled to see that so many people felt connected to our cause and donated to help the ones in need.
Exhibition at the Dutch Design Week
Every year designers from all over the world come to Eindhoven to exhibit their designs. This year we were asked to show the Sheltersuit.
The first Sheltersuits to the Balkan
The first 50 Sheltersuits for Syrian refugees are on their way! While our main focus lies on helping the homeless, we decided to also hand out Sheltersuits in the Balkans. Our friend Osman will travel to Istanbul. While driving, he will provide the suits to those who need them most.
We introduced the Sheltersuit at Offprint Projects in Beaux-arts de Paris, l’école nationale supérieure! We want to thank Offprint Projects for inviting us to their beautiful event. With their help and the help of Salvation Army we were able to give away 60 Sheltersuits to the Parisian homeless. Special thanks to Steve Iseger and his team from Infinity Studios for making this awesome video!
