You know how people encourage themselves to do good in their jobs by hanging pictures of expensive cars and stuff to get motivated? Well I'm going to make a "collage" (after I get everyones permission to use thier picture first!) of people who aren't as well off, since that's what I'm going to work towards. Not stuff for myself, but a reason to help others. And I know tons of people who think that way too so I think it'd be cool to give to them.
Thanks again!!

HaHa - yeah, I'm not real good at explaining myself. Ok, so when I'm sitting at my computer, working on the plans for my new business, it's not always fun stuff, so I need motivating to get through it. So, sometimes people in my situation will tape a picture of a really expensive car (or something) next to their monitor so they can see what they're working towards. Like, "If I succeed and get this done, I will generate lots of mulah and be able to buy the stuff I want." So with a new twist on that, I'm not hanging up pics of expensive stuff I can buy for myself, I'm putting pictures of homeless who don't have anything. Therefore, when i do start "rollin' in the big bucks", I'll be able to help those people.

MAN am I bad at explaining myself. (I just got back from a year of speaking 100% Portuguese, no English, so my English is no so good) :-)

Tom you did well enough so we understand what your intent is :) And it is great that you feel that way. I run a program for homeless folks and believe me, most people don't have your attitude.

I like your goal with this project :)Good luck!

I just wrote this, feel free to use it.

Eyes never meet
In a passing glance
Compassion rarely
Has a chance
An emotional game
Of hide-n-seek
Hidden love
From the poor and weak
A beggar's life
Is never rich
A richer life
He longs to live
A painful loss
A crushing blow
What caused his stress
We'll never know
Unless we have
Compassion's sight
And really see
The homeless plight.

Jeff

It's interesting. In my old apartment, I had a parallel idea, but I used photos of impovershed kids in the third world and photos of kids that had been 'recruited' into rebel groups and are holding these huge guns at age 10. It was to remind me how lucky we are to live in the places we do and do the things we do. Good luck in getting rich and helping the homeless
