Maybe next time we may not be so fast as to turn away the homeless. After all... can't we all spare some change?

So the winter weather is slowly disappearing in the Chicago land area... or so it seems. It's during those cold winter months that we really appreciate the small things. The streets of downtown Chicago are not always the friendliest. This next design piece done for the Weingart Homeless Project really draws attention to those who are less fortunate. We all at one time or another have been approached by the begging homeless, but are we always willing to help out? This project helps put people in the "shoes" of someone who may not be as fortunate as them in order to truly see what it means to be homeless. It's an attention grabber for sure, but also promotes a social cause. We enjoy seeing design being used for the better and as always design that makes us question who we are and what we believe in.
