Why lace it up?
#laceitup is raising awareness of youth homelessness in Australia and raising vital funds for Youth Off The Streets.
More than 47,000 young people under 25 are homeless, making up 48% of the homeless population.
You have the luxury of putting on a pair of shoes each day, homeless youth aren’t so lucky; instead they are forced to sleep with their shoes on at night to keep warm and ready to run from harm.
#laceitup is a simple moment in your daily routine – tying up your laces, and letting it act as a symbol for the thousands of young people that battle cold streets every day.
