“We Are All Homeless” Project

by Jacqueline Whitmore

Have you ever pulled up to an intersection and seen a homeless person asking for money? I think we all have. Do you roll up your windows, lock your doors, and look straight ahead? I always did, until one of my family members became homeless. I now have a greater empathy for those who have lost everything.

Recently, I met a man named Willie Baronet. He is an artist and professor at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, TX. In 2012, Willie gave a TEDx talk about a project he is working on titled, “We Are All Homeless.”

In July, he will be traveling to 24 cities buying signs from homeless people. He will then display them at various art exhibits around the country.

Additionally, Willie will be producing a book and documentary about his experience to help raise awareness about homelessness in this country.

I am committed to help him raise $5,000.00 for his project so that I can join him in one of the cities and participate in the documentary.

Etiquette is all about helping others. Won’t you please help me by making a small donation of $10.00? All you have to do is click this link or leave your email address in the comments section and tell me the amount you’d like to give.

If you’d like to get more involved in this project, you can do so by going to the We Are All Homeless Project website.

Please be sure to mention my name on the We Are All Homeless Project website if you’d like to make a more substantial donation. Any amount is appreciated.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support and consideration.
