TAKE OR LEAVE YOUR COAT!
(Sao Paulo, Winter, 2013)
When nine people died due to the unusual low temperatures in Sao Paulo last week, this group of friends decided they could do something.
They’ve created the wall of coats (but you can also find pants and blankets there) in the middle of the street.
Anybody can hang a coat on the wall and anybody can grab one. There are no rules.
The project is a success, and many people (mostly homeless people) are a little warmer today.
The goal is to keep the wall full of coats for the whole winter. But they are thinking ahead, and by October, when it’s Children’s Day in Brazil, the idea is to turn the wall of coats into a wall of toys.
