Hello and welcome to Hopeful World; the social project podcast. I’m Charlie Wright, founder of Hopeful Traders, the clothing brand that collaborates with the homeless community. In this series we will be shining a light on individuals and organizations taking the issues that affect our society into their own hands. At Hopeful Traders we aim to do more than just give. We want to build and connect communities where individuals are provided with opportunities to support themselves as well as the people around them. With this in mind we set out to speak to the people already making this idea a reality.
