Waterproof Blankets for the Homeless (South Africa)

Social Volunteering

In celebration of Nelson Mandela Day, volunteers came together in order to quickly and affordably create waterproof sleeping bags to be distributed to the homeless of Johannesburg.

Annually on Nelson Mandela Day, all South Africans are encouraged to give one hour back to the community in volunteer service.

The sleeping bags are constructed from durable plastic sheeting, making them waterproof, and insulated with newspaper in order to protect against the cold at night. The are affordable to construct, and incorporate the reuse of the discarded newspaper. It takes a team of two people working together approximately on our to create on sleeping bag.
