How many homeless people have you walked by this week? If you live in a big city, then I’m sure your numbers will be very high. As we go through our day, we usually walk on by without a second thought, moving right along without any eye contact or any communication. Now, I’m not trying to guilt-trip you for that. We are all human and our minds are usually preoccupied with a million other things but let’s just take a moment and think about how different the world would be if we took a few moments out of our day, even just once a week, to offer a smile or to say hello or to give a gift to the oftentimes neglected homeless that are around us every single day. I bet the world would be drastically different by this one simple action. One young lady is already aware of this very fact and is changing the world, one fashionable bag at a time.
