The Sudsy Challenge is about shining a light on the issue of homelessness and breaking down the stigmas.
It’s your chance to step outside your comfort zone. #KEEPYOURKITON for three days, talk about it with those around you and raise funds to support people doing it tough.
With over 116,000 Australians experiencing homelessness, Orange Sky provides access to free mobile laundry and shower services, as well as a place to sit down for a genuine and non-judgemental conversation.
You can take part and help us some vital raise funds and awareness for our friends experiencing homelessness.
Join us for The 2022 Sudsy Challenge in September – it’s a fun and rewarding experience! You can register your interest here and be the first to know when sign up is open.
‘Sudsy’ was the first ever laundry van built by Orange Sky Co-Founders, Nic and Lucas, at the age of 20. It took them three days (and three sets of broken washing machines and dryers) to get the van working.
Nic, Lucas and Sudsy hit the streets of Brisbane and met a friend named Jordan, who was the first person to use the free mobile laundry service. Jordan taught Nic and Lucas that while clean clothes were important, it was the conversation and connection that mattered most.
Every day around Australia, vans just like Sudsy hit the road to support people doing it tough. In these vans, there are six orange chairs that are pulled out at each shift to create an opportunity for volunteers and friends (people using our service) to connect through genuine and non-judgemental conversation.
By taking on The Sudsy Challenge, you’ll be helping to ensure that Orange Sky can continue supporting people experiencing homelessness with access to free laundry, warm showers and genuine connection.
We’d love to see you keeping your kit in September this year! There’s so many easy ways you can get involved. You can take part by yourself or sign up with your friends, family, workplace or even shift team if you’re an Orange Sky volunteer. You can also following along on Facebook to stay up to date with all the fun!
