Make Your Own Help Sign - Be Creative!

In addition to shelter, food and money, some people on the streets need help with signs they can display to ask for help!  These signs can be based on the lyrics of songs about the need for help, hunger and feeling down. Here are a few help signs you can print out, paste or tape to cardboard, and give to folks on the street, perhaps with a little string or stick to hold them up.  A small cardboard tent will also work.  To make them more attractive, print them in different colors or use brightly colored paper from your local copy store.  The guy in the street may appreciate the chance to chose the sign that he/she prefers?  Maybe you should give your homeless neighbors a healthy snack (homemade cookies) or a couple of bucks, as well?  Could this be a little project for your non-profit club our your school friends?  Your own song could also make a difference.


 

WE ONLY accept smiles, hugs, food and money?

Thank you :D

Help me if you can, I'm feeling down
And I do appreciate you being round.
Help me, get my feet back on the ground,
Won't you please, please help me?

Im just one, one more poor hungry man
Sun in the sky hurts my eye
Mouth all dry, may God help me
Wait by the road, man dont come
Rice all gone for thirty miles
Im just one, one more poor hungry man

Your local printer or copy store will most likely also be able to print these signs in any color using the PDF files that you can download to a disk or flash memory stick.  Some artistic people may wish to do their own lettering and add more flare or colors, photos, logos, etc. 

If you're an art, geography or civics teacher or student, this may be a good project for your class?  A team of 3-4 students can share the inspiration of designing and duplicating the signs and the work of making homemade cookies and collecting a couple of bucks to make a capital package for the homeless.  The team can also share the experience of delivering the goods and witnessing the response of the down-and-out guys, gals and families.  College or advanced high school students can also do more research on the number of homeless people in their own communities, and the policies of local government that affect them positively or negatively.

Do You Have a People's Purse?

Keep a couple of loose dollars and quarters in your pocket or other handy place just in case you're lucky enough to encounter someone who needs it more than you.  Separate these moneys from your main stash so you don't have to flash a big wad of $20s in the street.  Earmark this money as your People' Purse (bum bucks?) .  If you need to use it for feeding the parking meter, that's OK too, as long as you replenish it as soon as possible.  Don't avoid people in need - Seek them (with your People's Purse at hand).  And give them a kind word and warm smile, as well!

Selecting the Truly Needy

It's OK to select people you think are really needy as opposed to those who may be just lazy or doing a con job.  But, if your selection comes up with zero every week, perhaps you need to loosen up just a little bit?  Most of the people at the bottom have problems, including how they interact with other people.  Don't expect a great performance from a guy or gal who's down and out.
