Spotted in the subway

Someone taped off a few square feet in the Bedford Avenue L train station and noted that the market rent for this little space would be $68 per month.homelessness awareness

We need to talk about this

Not my normal light far. No snark. Very serious.

America’s homeless population, particularly teens and children, continues to grow. 60 Minutes’ coverage of this subject tonight tore out my heart, dropped it on the ground and then stomped on it with a stiletto for good measure.

I want to do something. For starters, I have some electronics equipment I plan to donate including a brand new fax machine/copier/scanner I had planned to sell on Craigslist.

Of course I realize that there are homeless people right here in NYC where I live, however the fact that 1/3 of the United States’ homeless population lives in Florida put into perspective the magnitude of the crisis (as well as how it taxes one state’s resources).

If you’d like to join me, leave a comment that includes your twitter handle or another means of contacting you. Let’s see what we can do to help collectively.
