Creative Homeless

Recipient of aid from the Breakthrough Urban Ministries (B.U.M.)...?

Maybe, but just because someone is homeless doesn't mean they can't come up with ingenious panhandling signs.

25 Awesome Homeless Guy Signs

Some of these signs are really quite clever.

Would you give them money?

blah blah on the lefty mantras Cube..sheesh..were all evil capitalists right?

Ananda girl said...

I am such a horrible sap... yes, I have been known to give a few a buck or two. (Hanging head in shame.)

WomanHonorThyself: They do prattle on, don't they? Yet republicans donate more money for church-based and regular charities than democrats. Go figure.

Ananda Girl: Don't feel bad. I hope there isn't one person out there whose heart is so steeled that they can't feel something for a human being in real need.

I give plenty to charities, and to the troops, and disaster victims when there is a special need. I just don't think that these panhandlers are really as deserving of our charity as many others.

Some were quite clever... But NO WAY would I give the 'honest' boozers any change.

brooke: I hear you. I can't walk past a Salvation Army kettle without giving a donation. We give money to firefighters and the Shriners when they are collecting at intersections. We send money to the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. We send boxes of goodies to the troops. We give to food drives.

Believe me, we give plenty as a family.

We just like to know that our hard earned money is going to a good cause and not some homeless Harry's boozapalooza.
