The Empowerment Plan Donates Coats That Double As Sleeping Bags

The brilliance of The Empowerment Plan is four-fold. They’ve developed a clever product that doubles as both a jacket and a sleeping bag. And if that weren’t enough awesomeness, the group donates the jackets they produce to the homeless. If their contribution to society ended there, they could walk away feeling pretty happy with themselves. But oh no, these are some true overachievers. The dual-purpose jackets are being made by a team of 20 formerly homeless employees, all now working and earning a living wage.

The Empowerment Plan keeps the homeless warm and gives a portion of that population a steady job. It’s simply an amazing win-win proposition.
