Peggy van Neer - Le Clochard

The tagline for Peggy van Neer's Le Clochard duvet is: "Sleep under a cardboard box so a homeless young person doesn’t have to." Depending on where you purchase it, 30% of the gross profits go towards SZN, Udenfor, or Centrepoint, charities in the Netherlands, Denmark and the UK respectively that support homeless youth. Le Clochard is available here (Dutch customers), here (Danish customers), and here (everywhere else). I love that Peggy is using design as a means for helping others.
