Design for a good cause

This isn’t my typical graphic design post, but it is still design. In fact it is my favorite form of design, which is design that helps people and makes a difference. This jacket is extremely warm, waterproof, and can be turned into a sleeping bag. This could be a great temporary solution for homeless people. It obviously doesn’t solve the issue but it can help ease a few basic needs in the mean time. The materials only cost 10-15 dollars. The plan is to hire homeless people to make them (giving them a source of income) and then selling them to the general public. The coats could then be donated to homeless shelters, organizations or the individual homeless people.

Check it out.
