On November 23, 2010 I pulled up to my house after a day at the shop. There was an AT&T truck parked directly in front of my house.
I walked into my house and turned on my television. It did not work.
A city of Contrast. A center of entertainment. A center of music. A center of cool trendy things and wealth? The city with the highest homeless population in the United States of America.
An emotionally draining slideshow which mixes art, whimsy, low production values, a general lack of composition, sexual tension, nausea and the feeling of foolishness you have if you can watch the entire show from beginning to end.
What could be better than an album of nothing but low resolution shots taken with my cellphone (and a few from friends cellphones as well) ... and then, take these low resolution photos and upload them in real time to facebook where the quality and size is reduced even more?
My paypal button. If you wish to make a direct donation to supply night time snacks to the homeless in the streets of Los Angeles please use the paypal button below.
The link below to paypal is to donate money for the healthy snacks I pass out to the folks that live on the street in the evenings. These are the folks that for their own reasons do not partake of the services offered by the missions.
My evening time spent on skid row is my own activity. The residents of the streets of skid row are my teachers. They each have things to say if you take the time to listen.
Helping me directly via paypal is not tax deductible. As many of you know more than 100% of these funds go to snacks for the folks on the street as I tend to take cash out of my own pocket.
If you would rather contribute to an organization where you can receive a tax deduction and use credit card, paypal, text message, personal check or most any other form of payment just hit the donate button at http://urm.org/ These folks know how to stetch a dollar and $10 will feed five people a healthy hot meal. The folks at URM help those in the system so to speak. I try to help those who reject organized assistance for their own personal reasons and do not wish to be in any system. In addition to my own activities I also contribute out of my own pocket to Union Rescue Mission.
