“Homeless. Anything Helps”

Homeless man

I see you

Walking about

Standing on the street corner

Holding a cardboard sign that says

It all




A born and raised Midwesterner who traveled to Oregon in 2006 via the Oregon Trail route, fell in love with Oregon and now call it home. I am retired and pursuing my life long dream of becoming a Freelance Inspirational Writer.

  1. It really is sad to see so many homeless people. I just wish those people who pretend to be homeless just to get money when they don’t genuinely need it would stop and think that they are making it much harder for those who are truly in need.

      1. Yes, it is. And the other problem in today’s society is that most people, including myself, don’t carry cash. I think the best way to help is take them and buy them a meal somewhere, but unfortunately I don’t usually have the time and often don’t have the extra money to do that. But it would “weed out” those who are really not interested in anything but money.

      2. True. I found an idea online that I am thinking of implementing. It is to make up little gift bags of a few varied necessities and perhaps a small gift card to get a meal and keep them in my car to hand out as the opportunity arises.
