On July 3, 2012, posters "Life on the streets" appeared outside in St. Petersburg, it’s a new Nochlezhka’s social ad.

Homeless citizens of St. Petersburg are captured in the city’s historical places, bright and ceremonial image of St. Petersburg is contrasted with cold and hard life side of the city.

Grigory Sverdlin, Nochlezhka’s manager, on the project: “Our social ad idea is simple: homeless are not of the different kind of species than us. They are people as everyone else. We live in the same city, walk the same streets, breathe the same air. Only one difference - absence of home.

Unfortunately, today no one is safe against the loss of housing. It is almost impossible to get out of the street on your own. Helping such people is a task for the whole society, cause’ there are no one to help them but us”.
