How did Orange Sky Australia get involved?
Orange Sky Australia was contacted by the production team at Returning the Favor - a US web series that searches for people who are giving back to their communities. We were asked to fly to Texas and help build a mobile laundry van as a surprise for Adahlia. She had identified Orange Sky as one of her key influences in starting her own laundromat for people in need. Our mission is to Positively Connect Communities - whether that be in a park in Brisbane or on the streets of Greenville in South Carolina. It was a privilege to be part of the project and we're excited to see how this mobile van can have a positive impact in America.
Who funded the trip?
All flights, accommodation and travel expenses for Nic were covered by Returning the Favor. This project was not funded by Orange Sky Australia.
Will Orange Sky be launching in the US soon?
Orange Sky Australia is in the process of setting up a charity in the US. The exact timeline for this is still uncertain, but keep an eye on our Facebook page for more details as things progress! We can't wait to start connecting people all over the world through free laundry and conversation.
How can I help?
You can get involved by registering your interest to volunteer at We will keep your details on file and be in touch if a van is being launched in your area.
You can also donate to Orange Sky Australia - for just $6, you can help to provide a load of laundry and an hour of conversation for a friend in need.
How can I bring Orange Sky to my area?
We know that there is a need for our service outside of Australia and we've received a tonne of international support from people who believe in what we do and have a genuine desire to help others. We are used to things moving extremely quickly at Orange Sky, but we’ve learnt that launching overseas can be a timely process. International expansion will be a huge part of our future, so we’d love if you could fill out a Registration of Interest form and tell us more about why you think an Orange Sky van is needed in your area.
Is Orange Sky religiously or politically affiliated?
Orange Sky is not religiously or politically affiliated. Our volunteers spend time on shift connecting with our friends on the street through genuine and non-judgemental conversation, and our mission is to Positively Connect Communities through a free mobile laundry and shower service.
