Homeless man seeks accidental donor of diamond ring.
Homeless man returns lost laptop and money.
Homeless man returns wallet full of cash.
Homeless man returns lost paycheck.
Generosity doesn’t disappear with the loss of one’s home. Homeless people make sacrifices regularly, and not just to return lost wallets. Homeless parents skip meals so their children won’t go to bed hungry. Homeless people will frequently give resources they have obtained, whether blankets, food, cash, or something else, to a friend who is “worse off.”
Wide recognition of this truth is an essential part of the battle to end homelessness in our country.
It shouldn’t be “news” to anyone that people experiencing homelessness are capable of great things.
