Streetvertising: Sisterhood Augustinessen

Since advertising signs were held by homeless people in exchange for pizza, we weren't that surprised when we reported that Nuns had discovered the perfect advertising medium, on the back of homeless peoples coats. Ben & Jerry's we're the first to sign up for the idea.

The Sisters Augustinessen have a new ad media channel, when they give away warm winter coats to the homeless, there's a space in the back where one can insert an ad.

The text on his back reads "Your ad here"

"Sisters and the homeless helping each other. Donators get the opportunity to have their ads on coats worn by homeless people. A win-win situation for everyone!"
