I am starting a campaign for all those homeless guys you see sleeping in bus stops and train stations. This is a real low budget campaign. I just wanna collect enough to buy all of the homeless guys t-shirts that say 'my other bed's in a house'. Thats all. It would accomplish a couple of things. Most importantly it would keep them warm(we can get long sleeve ones, ok). Besides for that though it would be a source of revenue for them. Think about it, every chinese tourist would love to get a picture with a homeless guy wearing that shirt (at least I would if I'd be a chinese tourist)which means more dollars! (whatever more dollars means to them is irrelevant) Also it would enable people who normally hurry by the lump on the sidewalk, to stop for a second, read the line, smile, and maybe think.
I'll admit its not the greatest charity idea out there, but if I manage to accomplish my goal, I know I'd sleep blissfully that night with the hoarse croaks of thanks ringing in my ears, and visions of big beaming smiles,flitting through my dreams, tooth and all. Wouldnt you do the same?
