Revolutionizing the way we build the Homeless Back Up, One T-shirt at a Time
Los Angeles, CA – July 19, 2016 – There are 564,708 people that experience homelessness on any given night in the United States. We cannot fix this problem easily, but we want to change the way in which people think about the homeless. Naab Design’s goal is to provide their tees to homeless who need them. They have already started passing them out and seeing the incredible benefits.
Arash from Naab Design is here to tell you about Models without Homes launching a GoFundMe campaign called “Models without Homes: Helping the Homeless.” They developed Models without Homes in order to put an end to the tragic cycle of homelessness amongst everyone in the US. Naab Deisgn thinks it will help the homeless find better outlets and escapes than a life on the street. Naab Design gifted their designed T-shirts to the homeless of Los Angeles and asked them to model for them. The experience has changed both our perception of the homeless, and how they see themselves.
All of products are made in US and printed on American Apparel T-shirts and Tank-Tops. Naab Design needs your help to expand this project to other cities and countries. They are also working on a short documentary of the experience and to raise the awareness of homelessness.
About Naab Design – Models Without Homes
Naab Design was started by Arash the Great, a web geek who loves literature and studied political economy. The other founder is Hougon, an artist who loves architecture and studied graphic design. At Models without Homes they are on a serious mission to get people into nice fresh shirts that will keep them feeling good and optimistic. That is why Models witho are reaching out today to ask for help in this collaboration. If you ask anyone what there safest, happiest, most wholesome place, most will say: their home. Yet In the U.S., more than 3.5 million people experience homelessness each year. 35% of the homeless population is families with children and youth, which is the fastest growing segment of the homeless population. And the vets and minority homeless are growing as well. We need to give them something to feel better about themselves.
If we don’t help these people, who will? What if it was your friend or family member on the street? How many more homeless people have to die every day before we recognize this trend? (Currently over 30 homeless die daily, in the US, from abuse, disease and suicide). What can we do to make a sustainable change in the future of the homeless youth?
