The Street Store

There’s something so exciting about simple, effective ideas that are a force for social good. Street Store, which describes itself as

the world’s first rent free, premises free, free pop up store for the homeless

is one of these concepts. If you’re new to Street Store, you should absolutely watch the video below to see how it works.

Warning: this video has been known to cause viewers to feel a wee bit emotional!

I’ve been so inspired by The Street Store that I’m currently looking into the possibility of organising one here in Southampton. I hope that by partnering with either (or both) of the organisations that support homeless people in this area – Two Saints and The Society of St James – I’ll be able to make this happen.

(With thanks to Jacqui for passing the Street Store link on to me).
