Reports says an estimated 643,067 people experience homelessness in the U.S. Death linked to freezing temperatures soared to 30% to 31,000 last winter. The homeless population is at a greatly increased risk for hypothermia and other cold related conditions. This risk is ever higher for those who suffer from mental illness or other physical illnesses. Even if they do not die from these conditions, their risk of death from future unrelated conditions is greatly increased.
Beanies are crucial to survival, with up to 50% of a person’s body heat lost through an uncovered head.
