Moreton Bay residents are being urged to wear the same clothes over three consecutive days this September to help raise awareness and funds for Orange Sky, the world’s first free mobile laundry and shower service.
Known as The Sudsy Challenge, the yearly event is aimed at washing away the stigma surrounding homelessness while also raising money for the charity to provide more laundry services, more warm showers and more meaningful conversations for those doing it tough.
Orange Sky volunteers Don Scott and Jan Dann, who can often be found at the van in Redcliffe, have already registered to take part in the challenge.
They will proudly wear the trademark Orange Sky orange shirt for three days.
Don is no stranger to The Sudsy Challenge. He has been volunteering at Orange Sky for five years and is set to complete his fourth challenge next month.
