Startland News is continuing its segment to highlight area entrepreneurs’ efforts to accelerate their businesses. This is an opportunity for entrepreneurs — like those behind Clean Slate Mobile Shower Unit — to share their crowdfunding stories to gain additional support.
Who are you and what is your organization?
My name is Kelsha James I am the founder of With A Good Purpose, alongside my husband, Jeremy. With A Good Purpose provides genuine acts of kindness throughout the Greater Kansas City Area.
What’s Clean Slate and why is it needed?
With A Good Purpose is now in the process of launching Clean Slate Mobile Shower Unit. Clean Slate will provide showers to the homeless community throughout the Greater Kansas City Area several times throughout the week. Clean Slate is needed in our community because those who need us the most are not only in areas where we have shelters or community showers. We can hand out hygiene care packs but think about it where they are going to utilize these items properly. Not only will we provide showers we will help find other needed community resources to assist the individual gain stability.

How much money do you hope to raise with your campaign?
What do you plan to use the funds for?
The shower trailer we hope to purchase costs $57,640. We also will need money for a water meter to be able to be billed for the water.
What else should people know about Clean Slate or this campaign?
The mobile shower unit will be looking for volunteers to run day-to-day operations and check ins. Clean Slate will help slow down the frequency of our homeless friends using public restrooms facilities to handle basic hygiene needs. Clean Slate is not promoting being homeless but giving an opportunity to start with a “Clean Slate” or fresh start. Clean Slate will be accepting donations of travel size basic toiletry items, towels, cleaning products, three folding tables, and folding chairs.
