"We live in a world that is so saturated by design and branding that these homemade begging signs just get drowned out…We want people to see these signs, and be curious about the person holding it.” 

The Signs for the Homeless project exchanges handwritten panhandling signs for colorfully illustrated, eye-catching recreations that aim to give the homeless a power that most of us take for granted: The power to be noticed.

Youth Homelessness is a big issue and needs more awareness. Many youths find it confronting to help or address the issue. Now they are able to help by shopping online. This is a short light hearted video which addresses how to help others out by shopping online at homepageforthehomeless.org where 15% of products get donated to youth homelessness. Please watch, share and like!
