I sometimes believe that it has become easy for us to just walk by those that appear to be living on the streets pretending we just don’t see them. We just assume in our little minds that they are not “help-able” or that there is nothing we can do. I can assure you that is bullshit! There is lots you can do if you choose to do it.
-You can buy a person who is homeless some lunch!
-Volunteer at a shelter even if it is just one or two days a month.
-If you can think of nothing else, when you walk by them on the street, say “hello” and smile rather than pretending you don’t see them. They see you.
This is a great story about a woman in Philly who is helping homeless men regain their self-confidence by getting them to go running. She gave up a dream job in communications to go out there and make a difference. I am inspired to watch this story.
