DONATING TO A NONPROFIT IS NOT THE SAME AS HELPING THE HOMELESS!

By Max R. Weller

During this cold spell, I’ve been concerned about getting the word out on Resources for the homeless in Boulder, CO.

People have been posting the link to my blog elsewhere on the Internet — including a website called “reddit” — and this has greatly boosted views here over the course of the past three days.

181 views both Friday and Saturday, with 351 views Sunday.

I appreciate the support! We all have work to do, so that our fellow human beings can lessen their risk of exposure leading to frostbite or even death.

      Thanks for doing so!

      It can be difficult, however, to get homeless shelter/services providers to disclose whether or not a specific person is to be found there; impossible over the phone because of privacy concerns. If one leaves a message, it should be forwarded. Maybe the best way is to personally visit the organization and ask other homeless people about the missing person.
