Good Cause

This isn't Sylvan Park related, but I thought it was worth mentioning. The Homeless Guy is a local resident who writes about his personal experiences with homelessness. He's currently experimenting with selling origami artwork (gift boxes) on eBay in an attempt to generate income in order to eventually get off the street.

Homelessness is an issue that is important to me, primarily because I've always had a reason to consistently spend time downtown and have seen people struggling to survive for most of my life. I thought this was an interesting and creative idea worth noting.

While we're on the subject, the Campus for Human Development is another great way to help people who are homeless.
