    I understand the intentions, but this is the most patronizing thing ever. This does not actually solve a problem. It puts a veneer on a symptom of a problem. I highly doubt those guys will get anything more than they already did, where as these kids are going to be able to put this in their portfolio and get pats on the back and these people still sleep in the cold. Why not redesign a non profit’s website, or logo, or soup kitchen, or literally anything else that would actually solve the problem of homelessness and not be complicit in it.

    whoa guys calm down, at least they are doing something. don ever pull people down for helping people even if its little, those things still matter a lot. I think this is so awesome! they look legit. :)

    This is really strange to me. I hope those signs came with significant monetary donations or more helpful resources.

    A Mike Hunt hat is kind of difficult to take serious.

    it helps because people are more willing to take notice of something polished and colourful than they are rough and bland- i think thats the point that is trying to get put across

    I love the after reaction once they get their signs ^_^
