The inspiration behind Sky Outfitters began back in the fall of 2010. I was volunteering at a low barrier homeless shelter in Bloomington, Indiana when my eyes were opened to the extremely tough situation that a lot of my neighbors lived in. I found myself connecting to many of their stories and my heart began to break as I learned about the struggle, pain, and hopelessness that most of them face.
I realized that many of these people who had nothing were thankful for anything. I was repeatedly amazed at the thankfulness that the individuals at the homeless shelters showed for the simple things that I take for granted everyday.
