Credits & Description

Publicis London and charity Depaul UK have launched a new business initiative selling cardboard boxes to home-movers. The Depaul Box Company allows those moving in to a new home to help those who have no home at all, by ensuring that all the profits from the sale of the boxes goes directly to national youth homelessness charity Depaul UK.The boxes, which each feature the moving tales of real young homeless people and striking line illustrations, also act as another platform to share the work that Depaul UK does and the people it helps.
Rather than try to stimulate donations and sympathy, the Depaul Box Company simply asks people to buy a product they would be buying anyway, for a price that they would already be paying.The Depaul Box Company will sell house-movers cardboard boxes competitively priced at £30 per pack of 10, £40 per pack of 20 and £60 per pack of 30. Packs are available at
