Keep your kit on for three days to raise awareness and funds for people doing it tough. By choosing not to change your clothes for three days, and talking about it with the people in your life, you will be helping to change the conversation around homelessness - and the lives of those in need.
So, who is Sudsy?
The challenge takes its name from ‘Sudsy’, the first ever laundry van built by Orange Sky co-founders, Nic and Lucas. It took them three days and three sets of washing machines and dryers to get Sudsy operating. They hit the streets of Brisbane, and met Jordan, who was the first person to use the free mobile laundry service. Through this experience, Jordan taught Nic and Lucas that while clean clothes were important, it’s the conversation and connection that mattered more.
How It Works
Ready to keep your kit on?
For our friends, the power of a conversation instils a sense of dignity and belonging, a universal language at which we can all understand. Just as Curtis from Newtown explains "conversations are just so important, you can't beat a good conversation"
Because of the environment our dedicated volunteers create on each Orange Sky shift, people like Curtis can feel at home, and be welcomed into a place where they can forget about the other stuff for a while.
