It's a sign...

Me as a homeless person.

One of my students is doing an ad campaign for Goodwill for another class. He asked me about how he might get some people to pose as homeless people, and next thing I knew I had volunteered. Along with Sharon Fowl
. As always, there was learning for me, particularly when I went inside a store still dressed up with dirt on my face, and saw the reactions I got.

In any case, I like the direction of this campaign, and the message that the things that I take for granted could make a huge difference to a homeless person.

We Are All Homeless featured as one of 5 Homelessness websites you should know

Click the picture to check it out. Here is the text about our blog:

This is a simple blog with a huge idea. This project started in 1993, when the author, Willie Baronet, began buying and collecting signs from the homeless. In 2009, Willie needed to develop an art project for his MFA program in Dallas, so he created small flash mobs of people holding homeless signs in public locations to create dialogue and increase awareness about homelessness. There are some amazing images and videos on the We Are All Homeless site, so please just click the picture below and head over there to see for yourself.
