Orange Sky Australia is the world’s first free mobile laundry service for people experiencing homeless – an idea founded in a Brisbane garage by two 20-year-old mates. Each week, all over Australia, thousands of volunteers put other parts of their life aside for a few hours to positively connect with friends on the street. Over the past three years, Orange Sky has completed over 570,000kg of laundry and provided more than 3,300 showers to people in need. Most importantly though, volunteers have engaged in more than 100,000 hours of conversations, helping to positively connect communities across Australia. Orange Sky Australia is a for-purpose organisation and they work hand in hand with the community to raise funds to support Orange Sky services. If you would like to learn more about Orange Sky Laundry and how they help connect communities across Australia, and now, around the world, please check out their website, https://orangesky.org.au/.
