Thank you for being part on our unofficial rainbow community.
I started this site 12 years ago and its been really fun to watch it grow. I have net a ton of family too!
I have a favor to ask. I have a book about how to help the homeless coming out in May and we literally just put up a community like this one so when the book comes out they will have a place to meet others and help our homeless friends online and off. )
So I wanted to invite you to be a part so its full of loving, compassionate family when new people show up in May. I will also be giving away free books to people who leave an Amazon comment after they read it.
This is the site HomelessFriend.com, a campaign of SpreadPeace.org a 501c3 nonprofit.
3,036 people died, homeless, on the streets of America in 2016.* This book is dedicated to those who find that unacceptable. It’s for people who refuse to stand by while others suffer.
There are many people that deserve to be credited for this book but most of all I must give thanks to all my friends who currently find themselves without a home for they came into my life and changed it forever.
After spending nearly, a decade on the streets I came to wonder who was helping who? I have witnessed a big, burly man cry because I handed him a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. I've had young teens offer me their body for a tent and I have personally lost dozens of homeless friends who died because they lacked shelter or lifesaving supplies.
You might ask, could I have done more? I asked myself that every day, with every death, as we traveled the country on the Peace Shuttle.
This book is the story of how “Who can you help today?” became the rallying cry of Spread Peace USA and a toolkit for those who want to answer that question with actions and not just words.
If this book inspires even one person to help another in need I will consider it a huge success. After handing a pair of socks to a homeless friend in Portland, Oregon he looked up at me and said, “It’s a miracle”. It was at that time I came to truly understand there is no big or small when it comes to miracles.
Thanks again, If you would like to be part of helping the homeless online or off I hope you consider being part of the community.
