Josh sits down with Sackcloth & Ashes founder Bob Dalton. Sackcloth & Ashes is a blanket company that offer more than warm, competitively priced, beautiful blankets. What truly sets this brand apart from others is that for every blanket you purchase, another blanket will be sent to a homeless shelter near you. After Bob Dalton’s mother fell into hard times, he got to catch a better glimpse and perspective behind the social issue of homelessness. From there he got to work building his response to this issue and continues to make an incredible product while raising awareness and encouraging more action in helping out the homeless community.
Bob Dalton was inspired to help the homeless population when his mother, a hard-working single mother, found herself living on the streets in 2013. Because of his Mother's story, Bob realized that not all choose to become homeless, and that some just need a second chance. He began to call homeless shelters in his area to ask what they needed: They all said blankets. In June of 2014, Bob founded Sackcloth & Ashes. For every blanket that you purchase, Sackcloth & Ashes gives a blanket to your local homeless shelter. On this episode we discuss: How Bob’s childhood shaped his career and the business he started. How Bob used his mother’s time on the streets as inspiration to start his business. The impact Sackcloth & Ashes has had on the homeless community. The advice Bob would give to someone who wants to be a social entrepreneur. How Sackcloth & Ashes is revolutionizing social entrepreneurship.
