Homeless T-Shirt – On the road again…
December 4, 2012 § 1 Comment
Well, as of this weekend, I’m going to be homeless. Well, not really. While I wait for a room to open up in a friend’s house, I’m moving back to my Mum’s place (for hopefully no more than a week). In light of that, here’s a Homeless T-Shirt.
I’m moving out of my current place. The magic that first drew me there – the people – are long gone and the place is a building site at the moment as the new landlord dolls it up for prospective new tenants. I had a place all lined up, but the people moving out are having their own difficulties and things have been delayed. So, depressingly, I’m schlepping back to the dull Oxfordshire town where I grew up and I’ll be schlepping to and from work every day. 3.5 hours a day on the trains. Not fun. But, I’m hoping that it’s going to be worth it and, one day, hopefully soon, I’ll be moving into my new place. Still, as glum as this can make me, at least I’ve got somewhere to go and a family. Not everyone does, and at this time of year, when so many people are gorging themselves with treats and splashing the cash, it really hits home just how bleak life on the streets must be. So, if you’d like to help out a little bit, why not give what you can spare each month to a charity that helps. I give a little bit each month to St Mungo’s which helps people in London and the South of England not only survive on the streets, but they do a lot to try and prevent people from ever being made homeless in the first place. So if you can give a little this year, find a charity near you and donate. A few £s or $s might make someone happy instead of miserable this Christmas.
This is a Candorville T-Shirt, in that it features a strip from the Candorville comic by Darrin Bell who has long used his considerable talent to examine social issues in his work with humour and reality combined. I discovered this tee at printfection.com where it costs $26.99, comes in five colours and sizes S to XXL.
