Today we challenge you to do an act of kindness for a person experiencing homelessness.
There are many ways to practice kindness with someone experiencing homelessness. One way is to make eye contact and have a conversation. People who are experiencing homelessness are often ignored and discriminated against. Being friendly and non-judgemental is a great first step.
You could also offer to buy a person experiencing homelessness a meal or offer a gift card to purchase groceries or food. You could also offer new socks, underwear, and other essential items.
Lastly, it’s important that we dispel myths and negative perceptions of people experiencing homelessness. This video and this article are both good starting points. We hope that today’s challenge reminds you that people experiencing homelessness deserve kindness too.
