Richard Jay and Orange Sky Laundry
OMP8 participant Carolyn Kirk's company Richard Jay Pty Ltd demonstrates the immense value and benefit to the community that can be created when a business partners with an innovative not-for-profit.
According to Richard Jay, when Nic and Lucas approached them in 2014 to support their innovative community initiative, they were all ears. What a fantastic concept to offer a free mobile van laundry service for the homeless and underprivileged in cities and regional areas. At first they thought it couldn’t be done with the laundry machines subject to the unpredictable rigours of daily driving, but they found a way. Together, with some help from their resourceful engineers and research and development team, they helped build the first, fully functional mobile laundry in a van.
