Make your mark - HELP homeless
Thank you for considering making a donation or grant to Backpack Bed for Homeless.
Message from our Founder
Backpack Beds SAVE LIVES.
"In 2007 I wondered why homeless people (who don't have shelter and are sleeping on our streets) were not given bedding to keep them alive.
This led to my wife Lisa and I designing the Backpack Bed and starting the charity Backpack Bed for Homeless in Australia. The Backpack Bed program has since been used in 8 countries and saved thousands of lives.
In 2017 Backpack Bed for Homeless Inc. was founded to help homeless across the USA.
The Backpack Bed is an emergency bed - it looks like a backpack, weighs only 6.6lbs and rolls out into an all-weather protected bed with mattress. The Backpack Bed has been study proven to improve dignity, sleep, health, warmth, comfort and safety. It has been awarded 7 International product Design awards.
People like you can make a difference by donating to help fund more Backpack Beds for our friends on the street for people who need your help tonight."
Founder & Chairman, Backpack Bed for Homeless Inc.
We partner with homeless agencies to reach homeless people without shelter and save lives.
We partner with Homeless Agencies such as:
- Street Outreach
- Drop in Centres
- Street Doctors and nurses
- Emergency / crisis accomodation (when they are full turning people away)
- Other homeless Agencies
The demand for our emergency relief Backpack Beds and Fire Retardant Sleeping Bags outweighs our fundraising each year.
Your Foundation, Family Trust or Giving Fund can make a difference today.
