I have recently come back from a trip to San Francisco, before we left, we all put in $15 dollars, we were going to hand it all out to the homeless people in San Francisco. Sadly, it was raining so we didn’t find anyone to give it to until the last night, we gave him $5 because we thought that we would find someone the next day to give it too, but we didn’t. Anyways, when we gave it to him, he talked to us for a little while, once we left and went back to the room, my grandma said, “Homeless people must feel like they are nobody, no one knows their name, most people are even scared to give them the money that they do give them.”
So I decided that it would be really cool to go down to Downtown San Diego and hand out money to all the homeless people, then I would ask them to tell me about themselves, if they allow I will take pictures as well and possibly videos of the interview I think that this would be really interesting. But the only problem is I don’t have enough money to fund that, so I decided that I would send out an email to all of the parents at my school asking them to donate, I also am going to make a Go Fund Me, or another donation website, to fundraise enough money to give to the homeless people. This blog will be full of pictures and updates on my project, that way people will know that their money is in fact going to the homeless people.
When I go down to the city, I will hand out the the money to the homeless people myself, with the help of family, and possibly friends of course. This will be a huge part of the experience because I would love to meet the homeless people and talk to them, as well as with their permission take pictures of them. I do not know how much each person will get, that will be a direct result of how much money I am able to raise, I would love to be able to give them about $10-$20 each but I am not sure that that will be possible. I would like to make a target goal of at least $250 in the first month. I hope that this will be possible. As soon as I finish my GoFundMe website, I will post an update on my blog, with a URL for that. Thank you for your time. If you have any questions, feel free to comment.
