There seems to be an international day for this or that all the time. Sometimes even an entire week or month is devoted to focusing our attention on an issue or group of people in need. These can be very powerful opportunities in terms of fundraising, awareness-raising, and garnering significant political power.
There are two hashtags we are using for the Atlanta Event. #MoreThanWords is the official hashtah for the World Homeless Action Day Movement and #WorldHomelessActionDayATL is the hashtag for the Atlanta WHAD.
If you are not in the Atlanta area but want to participate, you can click on the above image that has the guy sitting down with the sign saying “I Want Change” and either host your own event or help promote the event in your communities
This year, Atlanta, GA will be joining the cities all over the world taking part in World Homeless Action Movement.
The Atlanta Event
Admission is Free!
Art4TheHomeless has teamed up with Camden Midtown Atlanta and Eternal Impact Homeless Ministries to raise homeless awareness in a fun and innovative way. We will be collecting items to pass out to the homeless of Metro Atlanta after the event: toiletries, coats, clothes and blankets. There will be two live bands and a raffle drawing for fundraising for both Art4TheHomeless and Eternal Impact. Camden will provide free food and drinks (soda, water,) for everyone who comes!
