About it writes on Sunday, February 11, the British tabloid The Daily Mail.
The distribution point is on the square Martin, to date, the homeless have already received more than 10,000 items.
The idea was born during a move from one apartment to another and when young people realized that they are the owners extensive wardrobe worth at least $ 20,000, most of which had to be thrown away. And they decided not to send clothes to charities, and to distribute it to the poor personally.
The first station of the hand expensive clothes appeared at the end of 2016, it was called Pass It On Clothing and was located under a railway bridge in the Central area of Woolloomooloo. The needy were offered dizajnerskie jackets, jackets and shoes. The article notes that the average cost of one jacket from Ralph Lauren is 1,200 dollars.
The authors of the project said in an interview with Daily Mail Australia: they are not just gerbtool homeless clothes, but also return these people dignity and give a chance for a new life.
