Hanging up jackets on the tree for the homeless: ”People are concerned”

Soon the winter is here and the year jultrend seems to be to hang up jackets and outerwear in trees and on poles.

– Now it starts to get cold and people get very badly affected over the that there are those who lack a roof over their head, " says Pernilla Jonsson, Skåne Stadsmission.

Winter is almost here and that can mean a difficult time for those who lack a home and adequate warm clothing. Fortunately, there are those who want to share their warmth.

Just this got Tina Ersson see the sample on during his walk last week. When she was out with the dog, she saw suddenly a bag that looked interesting, which SVT written about.

– It had a patch on so I was a little curious, " says Tina for Aftonbladet.

the Bag hung on a pole, and contained clothing. On the patch that is attached on it, it was ”Freeze you? Take this bag with jacket, shirt, socks and underwear”.

– It will warm the heart of that there are people who have the energy to bother and think a little extra on the other, " she says.

Tina have done a similar thing fixed with pantflaskor. There have been collection points for people who want to leave the bottles and cans instead of to return them to themselves.

" Right I think this was an amazing gesture by a very nice man.

Take a jacket you need – give to a jacket you have over the

the Phenomenon is not entirely new. The person who hung up the bag may have been inspired by the Bulgarian Facebook page Hidden Cash Sofia. Where have the pictures of the coats hanging in public places in conjunction with the nice greetings been since the year 2015.

In Sweden, however, there are initiatives that do just that. Since last year organising Skåne stadsmission bet the ”Wall of kindness” where individuals can hang up the jackets they no longer need, want or want to give away.

– Every winter we have thousands of people who are freezing. This is very simple, you can take a jacket if you need to, or give a jacket to have over, " says Pernilla Jonsson communications and insamlingschef.

Pernilla Johansson tells us that the action is a citizens ' initiative. It was started by a private individual who contacted the city of Malmö, which in turn got together for a collaboration with Skåne Stadsmission.

– It is a cycle. Someone comes and leaves a jacket it does not want, then someone who is downloading the jacket.

”People are concerned”

After last year's Wall of kindness to more people to help. This year, the wall will also be available in Lund and Kristianstad.

" You see these initiatives from the very ordinary people. Now it starts to get cold and people are becoming very concerned that there are those who lack a roof over their heads or can't afford to buy a jacket, " she says.
