DailyGood News That Inspires

a project of ServiceSpace

Jason Sowell & The Laundry Project

Return to the most human, nothing less
Will nourish the torn spirit, the bewildered heart,
The angry mind: and from the ultimate duress,
Pierced with the breath of anguish, speak for love.

Jason Sowell & The Laundry Project

When DailyGood volunteer, LuAnn Cooley walked into a laundromat last week, she was greeted by a group of volunteers from The Laundry Project -- a non-profit whose generous mission is "to assist families with meeting a basic need -- washing clothes and linens, by turning laundromats into community centers of hope. Laundry fees are paid for while volunteers assist with laundry services, entertain children, and create a caring space at the laundromat." Surprised and intrigued, Cooley then met founder Jason Sowell (a writer, speaker, social entrepreneur, missionary, part-time barista and more!) and learned about his journey and inspiring vision. This TEDx talk by Sowell offers a glimpse into his story, and his conviction that for many, the gift of clean laundry can be an affirmation of human dignity and possibility. { read more }
