A lot of us are prejudiced against homeless people. A scenario of them panhandling on the streets usually creates a crisis of conscience for us. We want to help by giving away a bit of money, but we are never sure how it will be spent. Although there are those who use the money to feed their families, there are some who just use it for cigarettes, alcohol, and drugs.
The following photos are from a video created by an organization called Rethink Homelessness. The organization’s goal is to help people reevaluate their preconceived notions about homeless people and homelessness in general. After all, there is so much more to these people’s lives than just homelessness.
