Homes for the homeless

Post by Zentruckdriver » Wed May 07, 2014 12:47 am

Recycling and kindness all in one. :heart: ... -shelters/

Gregory Kloehn goes dumpster diving, but not for the reason that most people would think. He isn’t homeless. In fact, he is an artist from Oakland that is trying to help the homeless and develop his craft at the same time.
Instead of building sculptures that he would sell to rich people to add to their massive homes, he decided to focus his efforts on helping house the homeless population in California.
Dipping a toe in or pulling myself from a swamp...yeah that covers it for now.

Going to school and having lived in Oakland, I see homeless people almost every day. Many live in the open air or under freeway overpasses. Some have makeshift hovels made of garbage and plastic. I see a lot of homeless with shopping carts filled above the brim with massive amounts of stuff and recyclables they collect from trashcans. There's tons of trash on the streets in some neighborhoods. People throw out their mattresses or junk on the freeway. And this is in a first-world country. I can't imagine what it's like in the third world.

This guy is doing everyone a public service by cleaning up the streets and providing shelter for people. :clap:
