Founded in 2012, Under One Sky have served over 4,000 homeless people prior to lockdown. They are active in Cambridge and Madrid, with plans to expand to Manchester, Brighton, Bristol, Paris, and Berlin. Their work relies exclusively on private funds, and they spend donations on supporting homeless people directly.
On April 2nd, 2020, during this Covid-19 pandemic the group launched an emergency daily food delivery campaign, whilst raising awareness of the plight of the rough sleepers ‘left behind’ in Central London. By early July, over 32,000 meals had been served.
As their emergency relief activities wind down and regular homeless facilities are switching back on, they are planning new projects to continue serving those who don’t have a safe place to call home.
“After the economic fallout of Covid-19 in the UK” said Mikkel Juel Iversen, Founder of Under One Sky “As a small, but powerful grassroots organisation we have identified new ways that we believe will truly support our homeless friends. Funds raised from this auction will help us deliver these goals”
The auction can be viewed at www.jumblebee.co.uk/underonesky and will officially close at 10pm on Friday 24th July 2020.
I will be hosting an official closing party at 7pm that evening, featuring live bids, musical entertainment from Mica Paris, Lily Bud & Liani Samuel, and interviews with Under One Sky volunteers, it will be available to watch on livestream via UOS’s Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/Under1Sky
