A Hand Up (Not A Hand Out) For The Poor And Homeless

A Hand Up (Not A Hand Out) For The Poor And Homeless

StreetWise is one of the largest “street papers” in the United States and focuses on news that is “socially conscious and Chicago-centric.” Our mission is to empower the entrepreneurial spirit through the dignity of self-employment. We provide Chicagoans facing homelessness with a combination of supportive services, workforce development resources, and immediate access to gainful employment by becoming a StreetWise vendor. By purchasing and taking the magazine, you are providing a "hand up, not a hand out" to one of our 150+ vendors working towards self-sufficiency. Founded in the early 1990s, StreetWise is a practical solution to the crisis of homelessness in Chicago: give homeless men and women a chance to help themselves and gain personal dignity by selling a newspaper to earn income rather than begging for money.

Having the ability to order branded clothing and gear without maintaining inventory is an excellent way to increase awareness about our organization and keep costs down.

Our charity link has only been live for a couple of days, and we already have had a lead from a baseball program that saw us on the CLOZTALK website and is interested in doing a collection drive for us. How cool is that?

Ideal partners are the ones who bring resources you do not have, have the expertise you need and deliver a high-end product that enhances your brand. CLOZTALK is that partner. Having less administrative burden and better style in our merchandising has elevated Dreams for Kids!

It is great to see all of these wonderful non-profits listed and to learn about all of the great work they are doing. It makes you want to support more than one. The quality of the apparel is top notch and sizes are always available.

This ability to provide quality branded apparel to our constituents allows MDA to engage with individuals who don’t yet know about our organization, and with proceeds from CLOZTALK's net profits going back to MDA’s cause, it’s a win-win.

CLOZTALK is such a great resource for charities that have enough to do without having to figure out clothing options on their own!
