It's G.D. awful. There was recently a story of a guy who burned to death in one near my home.

And Texas has the highest rate of homeless children (story here). I can only imagine what life must be like for those who can't stay the night in a shelter or on a friend's couch.

At our food bank we're asking people to donate food with pop-top lids because not everyone has access to a stove to cook stuff.
hello.world.
The sad thing is I didn't even know about these tent "cities" until my friend was telling me about a fundraiser she is doing for them. She's calling it "Pitching in for tent cities- Say NO to 3rd world America!".

It is very sad that this happens.

Webbie, what type of pop-top lid food do you suggest people donate?
You cannot invite someone to your house in the Hamptons and when she arrives, not let her stay. Tacky. Very Tacky. ~ East Village hipster.

People in Ward Three disdain three things: cleavage, hunting and dumb people who are richer than they are. ~ David Brooks


Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it. ~Armaments 2:9-21

this is just horrible.

I do not know the stats on seniors that are homeless, but I'm willing to bet that if you're homeless, you probably don't have health care (and yea, TX is #1 in failing to provide that too)

Ideally, it's best to donate money. We can purchase a lot more with $5 than the average consumer can - unless your name is Mr. Walmart.

Lisa Ling did a whole expose on this for Oprah. I was horrified. You can see still shots and read about her report here http://www.oprah.com/dated/oprahshow...0218_recession
