Mastato Beanie Campaign raised £420

Mastato Beanie Campaign raised £420

Posted on: 3 March 2016 in

Between November 2015 and 29th February 2016, a London designer - Masato, ran a homeless beanie campaign to raise money for several homeless organisations nationally.  YRP is proud to have been chosen as one of the recipients.  The campaign was started after Masato became aware of the increasing number of rough sleepers in the UK and he wanted to do something practical to help.  He designed a beanie and scarf range and for every one purchased, £5 was donated to the charity nominated by the buyer.

Via social media sites, he promoted his aims and quickly the word got out and in total 970 beanies and scarves were bought by caring members of the public.  £420 was raised for YRP and we are incredibly proud to have been part of such an amazing campaign.

Thanks to Masato and his team of volunteers and also to all those who bought a beanie!
