days to go
For one year I want to collect people's pocket change. The coins my husband leaves on the dresser, the cents found on the sidewalk, the leftover pocket change from a purchase at the gas station. All of these seemingly meaningless coins can add up over one year to help a worthy cause.
Right now, there are over two million young people who face bouts of homelessness each year in the U.S. Most have been forced from their homes because of circumstances beyond their control. Some manage to make it through school but others are less fortunate, resorting to begging or prostitution just to survive.
