THE RED BUS PROJECT– are they coming to your school?
Who is it?
Caleb Chapman, Steven Curtis Chapman’s son and Chris Wheeler, Show Hope’s director of student initiatives began asking the question what can students do to care for orphans while still in school? They wanted to create something unique that they could do on campuses and they didn’t just want to ask for a one time or on going donation. This is where the mobile thrift store idea came to mind. They were able to buy a double-decker bus and have it shipped all the way from England and remodeled into a thrift store on wheels. This spring, the bus has launched a tour of 25 college campuses and then the band CALEB performs each night to drive more support to the bus.
What is it?
They are driving a double-decker bus-turned-mobile thrift store from college to college, spreading awareness about the needs of orphans and raising money for orphan care. Donate your best clothes, buy clothes on the bus and invite all your friends to join the Red Bus Project. The funds raised by the thrift store will go toward providing forever families to orphans.
Because millions of orphans around the world need a family. Together we can give them a voice.
