A 15 year-old teenage girl named Emily Duffy has invented a revolutionary sleeping bag for the homeless that is rain and fireproof.

But that’s not all – She’s hiring homeless people for $10 an hour to manufacture them, providing them with a source of income to get back on their feet!

She says the idea came to her after living as homeless person for a night to raise money for charity.

These “Duffily Bags,” have a highly reflective, fire retardant and waterproof shell with velcro straps allowing for an easier way to get in and out of the bag.
