Project: We See You was inspired after I wrote about some beautiful words that popped up in my Facebook feed, and the following interaction I had with a homeless woman outside of Starbucks.
Soon after, I decided I would make a few bags of my own to hand out to the homeless of Houston.
I had no idea people, from all over, would come through to make this bigger than I’d planned.
My heart exploded from the generosity of so many people – some of them friends, some total strangers.
So many friends came over to help me stuff bags and prepare them for distribution.
It was amazing.
The night I handed them out was like nothing I’d ever experienced. It changed who I was and how I planned on living from then on.
Wanting to help out more, I participated in the annual Houston Homeless Count.
Then, helped to make people’s first houses, into a home.
With the help of so many, we made it happen.
