01 Mar Sleeping Pods for the Homeless
Last year close to 3,000 people were living on the streets of Seattle without shelter. We have been brainstorming a way to help with this crisis and think we have found a solution – Temporary Transitional Sleeping Pods.
The pod can be erected by 2 people in less than an hour and transported in the back of a pickup truck. The goal is to be able to provide a transitional sleeping pod to provide security, a bed, and basic essentials, until a better solution is available.
We are currently in the process of building a prototype but will need your help to get this project rolling.

Each pod costs about $1500. Here’s another way you can help.
