A total of 6,508 people were seen rough sleeping by outreach workers in London during 2013-14 – a 77% increase in four years. The Wrap Up Project was created by WCRS to raise awareness of the UK’s increasing homelessness problem and support the fantastic work St Mungo’s Broadway do to help people rebuild their lives away from the streets. Like them, we believe that everyone should have a decent place to live, something meaningful to do and enjoy good health.
When the temperature drops, homeless people become particularly vulnerable. The snowflake patterns in our wrapping paper designs depict the common cold, influenza and pneumonia – all ailments which pose serious risk to those living rough on our streets.
The full proceeds from this wrapping paper go to St Mungo’s Broadway. By buying it you can help homeless people wrap up warm this Christmas. And give, while you give.
