Using fashion to raise awareness about homeless young people

What is the problem you found?
Our issue is homeless people, particularly homeless young people, who have no food, water, housing or connection to other people.
What is your opportunity?
How might we use fashion to raise awareness and support homeless people?
Who is your audience?
Our plan is to reach out to organisations who work towards supporting young people in our community Eg. Mission Australia.
What Is Your Solution?
Our solution is a bracelet that connects young people who are living on the streets to support and mental wellbeing whilst also raising awareness about the number of homeless young people in Australia.
This high-tech bracelet will have buttons which automatically contact support services and mental health services. This gives homeless individuals the connections they need for help and wellbeing.
We plan to sell this bracelet to NGO's such as Mission Australia who have an existing network who can distribute these bracelets to those who need them.
