Coats That Can Be Converted Into Sleeping Bags
Veronica Scott, despite being told over and over again, that her project would inevitably fail, started a company producing coats which are dual purpose, and can be turned into sleeping bags.
She was at that time a student and only twenty years old.
Her company now distributes the products to the homeless and ‘down and outs ‘ all over the USA and Canada.
Moreover, people stranded in difficult situations can work on this project, helping to make them to be self-sufficient again.
“being told over and over again“: when other people keep on telling you something.
double in other languages
down and out: a person without money and place to live.
