On Oct. 31, a fundraising campaign was launched to raise $75,000 by Thanksgiving to purchase sleeping bags for Seattle’s homeless population. The campaign was started by several Seattlites in conjunction with multiple corporate and nonprofit organizations with the aim of providing sleeping bags to the over 3,100 people enduring Seattle winter temperatures each night. An Indiegogo page has been set up for the campaign which allows individuals to donate money to the project, with the option of purchasing one sleeping bag for $20. For more information, look for the follow-up article in the next issue of The Falcon.
