TO SUPPORT ‘32,000 TO GO\’

Sydney‐based jewellery designer Matt Weston has joined forces with The Salvation Army Oasis Youth Support Network to help raise awareness of youth homelessness in Australia and support their ‘32,000 To Go\’ campaign.

This is a charity initiative that will appeal to the socially aware and fashionconscious alike!  Matt Weston has designed a limited edition wristband that doubles as a lanyard and can be used as a key chain or even a necklace charm for the fashion adventurous!

Made from denim, the wristband features the ‘32,000 To Go\’ campaign logo and reminds us that every night more than 32,000 young Australians are homeless. By purchasing a wristband, you can raise awareness of this issue and help Oasis to reduce this figure.

Matt Weston said about his design: “The reason I wanted to get involved with this project was to help raise awareness about the level of homelessness among young people in Australia. A staggering 32,000 people under 24 are currently homeless in Australia, ‘32,000 To Go\’ aims to provide a platform to tell real stories and show individuals that they can have a direct effect on reducing this number.

“I want to help Oasis communicate this message in particular to young Australians who have homes and families that they might give a thought to their less fortunate counterparts on the street. We used tough, durable denim, alongside a key to remind us that not every one has a front door and a snap clasp so the lanyard can be attached to your keys, worn on your wrist, on your belt loops or anywhere to show your support and help spread the word.”

These limited‐run lanyards are available exclusively from General Pants stores  nationally for just $5.00. This Christmas, why not pick one up as a last‐minute stocking filler for the ones you love& Being fashionable has never felt so good!
