Co-Founded CRACK + CIDER: a shop where you can buy essential items which we distribute to homeless people
Generous, empathetic people aren't giving cash to homeless people on the street
People don't give because they worry it'll be spent on drugs and alcohol
A simple, transparent model of buying essentials which are given direct to homeless people
What we accomplished:
With only $900 of our savings we sold over $60,000 six weeks from launch. That's an ROI of over 5,600%
We distributed over 6,000 items to the homeless in London during the coldest January in 4 years
