Homeless Pop Up Store
Welcome to My Name is Human’s first pop up store!
We are located on floor -1 of 3 Neal Street, Covent Garden, London.
Open December 16th from 9am-6pm
The idea of the pop up is very simple. The homeless will have the opportunity to shop for themselves, completely free of charge. They will also be offered vouchers for a shelter, free hair cuts and the chance to sit down and enjoy a hot meal. (We are also working out the logistics to run a movie night too)
'Shop’: Clothes, sleeping mats, blankets, sleeping bags, inflatable pillows, tents, books, hygiene products, dog food, shoes, basic supplies, accessories (hand warmers etc)
‘Experience’: Vouchers for shelter, Hair cutting service, hot food, social club.
At the moment we are only open on the 16th, as it started as a much smaller concept and then grew with the generosity of donations and volunteers, but hopefully if this is a success we can secure a longer term space somewhere.
So far we have confirmed partnerships with: Stance Socks, Weleda, Happy Dog, Pickywops, Imad’s Syrian Kitchen and we're currently talking with local shelters, outdoor brands a local hair salon and more brands for partnerships. Most of the items for the store will be purchased in advance online.
We are looking into the option of opening to the public, giving them the opportunity to ‘buy’ products for the homeless, but actually leaving with nothing. (Similar concept to the ‘Help Refugees: Choose Love store’.)
If you would like to volunteer with us on the weekend of December 15th + 16th please contact us.
