IMPORTANT: When donating to this campaign, please add ‘Fill A Flask’ as reference.
The ‘Fill A Flask’ campaign is designed and aims to distribute thermal flasks, one to each person sleeping rough. The distribution timeframe is specifically targeted for the beginning of summer, a time when many rough sleepers need a cold drink, the flasks are extremely durable and can therefore be used throughout the year. Since launching the campaign in 2018, we have distributed 6,000 flasks to rough sleepers in London, Manchester, Brighton, Birmingham and Norwich.
The primary objective of the campaign is to successfully distribute a thermal flask to every rough sleeper on the streets of the U.K. The secondary objective is to increase the OAPA brand through enhanced media coverage and thereby recognition of our purpose, aims & values.
The cost for the campaign is £10,000. The use of flasks is environmentally friendly and based on a minimum average usage of each flask being filled three times per week per rough sleeper at 3000 rough sleepers saves 9000 plastic water bottles being used in just one week. The campaign will be funded via sponsors and donations.
The Fill A Flask campaign will take place on 7th July > 12th August 2021
London, Brighton, Manchester, Norwich and Scotland
