Who’s The Fresh Undies Faction?
The Fresh Undies Faction was founded by a single person, doing small deeds in his local community, but anyone can be part of the Fresh Undies Faction with some simple #FactionAction!
If you’re at the store, buy a pack of socks and or undies. (or water bottles, tuna packs, crackers, pet foods, etc.) Throw them in your backpack and give them out to folks you’re comfortable approaching and asking if they’d accept your items. – Congrats! You’re now part of The Fresh Undies Faction! Make a day of #FactionAction, or just keep items in your bag or car…just in case you see someone in need on some random day.
Hashtag #FactionAction with a picture or video of the charity items you’ve donated or of the pets you’ve helped feed! (WARNING: please give pet items to the pet’s owner, do not reach out to dogs without first asking for permission!). Let us know which city you’re in, as we’d like to know where the Fresh Undies Faction has reached.
PHOTO VIDEO TIP: Most people are fine with sharing their pets for photo and video opportunities. However, when it comes to them personally…the situation might be different. Offer to snap the photo from the shoulders down (or not at all) if the person you’re giving to is uncomfortable with being on camera. Remember, the goal of #FactionAction is to help the homeless…not to accumulate likes on our personal social media pages.
Have fun and be safe! Only travel to destinations or areas you feel safe.
