Q:Hi, Do you sell the cardborigami shelters?
At the moment, we are not selling these units for general use. Our immediate priority is to respond to the homeless population—but, as we get our infrastructure set-up (such to accommodate for general sales) we will notify you. How? It’s simple, click here and let us know you are interested and we’ll send you a notification right when they become available to you.
Q:Where can I buy one?
Thank you for your interest! These units are not currently available for purchase by the general public—however, you may provide us with your information so that we can notify you as they become available. Here is the link to our online form: http://bit.ly/YdTG6A
There may be times, certainly, when being a member of an organization seems bothersome and we just want to be alone. But how sad it is if we are left alone without any support and then lose our faith. True growth comes from striving together with our fellow members in the living realm of human beings, experiencing the rich gamut of human emotions. -Daisaku Ikeda
What a sad thought that most homeless people start their spiral downward with this concept.
Q:Where are you guys based out of?

An Opportunity to Conduct Case Studies
Cardborigami is a portable shelter that provides insulated, water-proof, flame-retardant and recyclable space with no assembly required. We will partner with organizations that have facilities where people could safely use our shelters temporarily while our staff provides connection to the resources people need to get off the streets. With funding we can finalize product development and conduct research by implementing case studies to study behavioral adaptations to the shelter and success rates of those we transition of the streets. We will then refine the structural elements of the shelter to improve the ergonomics of the unit, making sure that it provides a sufficient fit for the human body, its movements, and its cognitive abilities.
We have entered the GOOD + Brookside Food “Give Back” Challenge for $5,000 which will help fund our case studies. You can help by casting your vote here!
Voting ends Friday December 9th 2011. Please act now to help us gain a deeper understanding of how we can best help the homeless. Once again, you can help by casting your vote here!
”Like I say, if you’re going to go to my house or you’re going to call me, or you need to see me, please ask me how I am ’cause I got my problems. I need somebody to come and help me talk. Don’t give me nothing. I don’t want nothing from nobody. I just want you to sit with me. ‘Juanita, how are you today?’ That’s all.”
