Sept. 13, 2012 - PRLog -- World Homeless Action Day is a worldwide collaborative effort that is held on the 10th day of October every year…….What should or could be done on this day? The day is there for you and your community to use, as you see fit, to create change and make a difference in the lives of people who are experiencing homelessness in your local area.

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.
