Beyond raising awareness, this project hopes to be able to aid the homeless population directly. Though the details have yet to be hashed out, I would like to be able to set up a trade program where purchaser’s of the book help the homeless directly. This may entail a winter beanie and two pairs of thick socks being donated for every book bought, something of that nature. Socks are one of the most needed items of homeless shelters but among the least donated. Far short from changing their living situation, at the very least this will keep some toes toasty.
This is of course only fantasy for the moment, I hope to develop a solid and rewarding exchange program as the project proceeds. This is largely dependent on the product, publishers, prices, and a whole slew of ‘P’ words I know nothing about yet.
Any and all updates will come through my ear and straight onto this page 🙂
