The Brighter Tomorrow Map – backstory

Nearly 2 years ago i posted on Reddit with an idea to help support the massive number of people sleeping on the streets in the UK. I received a hugely positive response to my post – so i took that and have been building a map to help them ever since. I quickly realised that this could help people all around the world the map is now a global map

after 2 years building i’m proud to announce our homelessness resource map is (finally) ready to Alpha launch!!

2 years ago volunteers at Focallocal began building the Brighter Tomorrow Map in response to the many homeless people around the World, and Governments/Charities inability to solve it. I’m proud to announce our homelessness resource map is (finally) ready to Alpha launch. Please tell everyone, and take 5mins adding all the resources you can find to it!

how can we ‘positively’ halt the flood of fake news? new project!

It’s as if most bloggers, media and news sites have reached a point where they’ve realised there really is no down-side in misrepresenting, or simply inventing facts to support their stories. If it agrees with their beliefs most readers will share it anyway, and those who do call it out only increases the attention they get ..and of course in turn their profits…

Hack Homelessness and Happiness – February 4th and 5th 2017

We’ve been working on this resource map for 1.5 years now and it’s close to launch. This Hack-Day is to finally finish it, and promote it so it can begin helping those on the streets all around the World.

The map is called the ‘Brighter Tomorrow’s Map’ and it lists all the resources available to people who are living on the streets, with a focus on reducing the barrier between the public who want to do something to help, and those who are living on the streets around the World.
