It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… We bet your wish list is a lot different than theirs.
DISCLAIMER: I am in NO WAY trying to exploit the homeless by putting out this video. The purpose of the visuals is that I want to bring AWARENESS to the issue, and sometimes that means we need to disturb and shock people to get attention.
The use of “It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas” sang by Bing Crosby is to illustrate how the consumerism of holidays tend to make us forget what truly matters: making the world a better place, instead of drowning our minds in what presents we want or the new iPhone we NEED.
This video is to raise awareness of the Homeless Population that still surrounds Detroit and to remind those of the homeless individuals across the United States. We still have a glaring problem in the form of Homelessness. It’s a call to action to change your mindset. And if it disturbs you, then I did my job.
WAYS TO HELP: BLESSINGS BAGS

- Peanut Butter
- Single Serving Tuna Packets (The ones with the Crackers are the best because they already are “Tuna Salad”)
- Plastic Cutlery
- Hoodies / Coats
- Hand Sanitizer
- Masks (New Addition due to Coronavirus – Many homeless people cannot access buildings because they can’t afford a mask)
- Single Serving Soups (Though they will not be able to heat them up but at least it’s some nourishment)

- Kool-Aid Packets or Mio Water Enhancers
- Non-Alcoholic Mouthwash
