Gift Card Project: 3 Ways to Help the Homeless


Conserve restaurant gift cards and carry them with you at all times.


Be on the lookout for people in your community who are homeless and see them as individuals who you can help.


Serve in the form of a conversation, a potential friendship, and the very practical assistance of a gift card for food and drink.

About The Gift Card Project

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.
