Gift Card Project: 3 Ways to Help the Homeless
The Gift Card Project is an idea, movement and national effort started by Ryan Bilodeau that is meant to encourage people to carry around $5 gift cards to fast-food restaurants and be on the lookout for the homeless. The challenge of GCP is to have a genuine conversation with the person you are helping. GCP helps the homeless in a practical way while also reminding them of their own dignity, which is not depleted because of their current state. Pivoting out of poverty first requires a person to believe in that dignity. That is the real goal of GCP.
