Kyn is a homeless aid initiative started by Infiltration Airsoft to give back to the community. We aim to raise money during events and throughout the year to create what we call the 'Homeless Survival Pack'. By sponsoring us or taking part in raffles we will run on game days you can directly help some of the most vulnerable people living rough in the UK.
More than 300,000 people in Britain – equivalent to one in every 200 – are officially recorded as homeless or living in inadequate homes, according to figures released by the charity Shelter.
Our HSP packs will firstly be aimed at helping peoples immediate living conditions, the elements, hunger and hygiene. Secondly we want to give them a way of getting back in touch with friends or family they may have previously lost contact with. Or to help them find work or shelter by given them the right contacts and ability to be contactable through a pay as you go phone.
Professional first aiders will also accompany us to help perform some basic health checks when we go out and hand out the packs.
The HSP packs will be bought in bulk so we can help as many people as possible especially through the colder winter months.

Meaning of KYN
Kyn is the nordic word for kindred. After working in London for many years and getting to know many homeless men and women with very similar backgrounds and upbringings as my own I decided to setup Kyn to try and give something back. Kyn is run as a 100% non profit organisation, every penny raised will be going towards our HSP packs.
Kindred Spirits are two people that make a special connection by sharing a bond that has joined them by the means of an experience that has drawn them together on a higher level of consciousness. This connection can be from the same experience at the same time or two separate experiences similar in nature.
If two people were in a dramatic situation and had to depend on each other in order to get out of the situation or one having to help rescue the other, they would become bonded as kindred spirits.
KYN aid days
Once we have raised enough funds to create the HSP packs we will be asking our IA member to volunteer and join our staff in distributing the packs in different locations around the UK.
Throughout the year the team here at IA will be taking part in charity events to raise money for Kyn. If you wish to sponsor Kyn you can at our events or via the donate button below. To help distribute what your money is going get in contact with us directly through the contact page.
