Talking I started a charity for the homeless.

I thought I would post this on here to kinda show you guys why I haven't been on in a while. I would also greatly appreciate any of your likes on our facebook page for my charity.

Company overview: The D.O. for B.O. Charitable Corporation is a community wellness institution that offers: deodorant, self confidence, positive attitude, and a little bit of hope to the homeless. The daily use of deodorant is necessary to help fight body odor and maintain cleanliness. This necessity is taken advantage of by many Americans today, and DOBOCC’s goal is to deliver this to the ones who need it most.

I figure I can get some marketing experience getting donations. I don't have a job right now. That would look great on my resume. I also feel good about helping people in need. The people in need also feel good about me helping them. It's one of those win win situations.

Take a look at my sites and let me know some feedback. Maybe you even want to donate some deodorant.

God bless,
Josh

That's a very admirable thing ya have going on there. Alot of people like to just turn the other way because they don't want to see or deal with things like that. I think it is an awesome thing you're doing. It allows you to appreciate the simplest things in life and appreciate what you have and may take for granted. Keep up the good work!!

In my experience working in cities and hospitals, most homeless people have no interest in getting a job or improving themselves. It is much easier to sit around asking for handouts and then using the handouts to buy cigarettes and booze. I haven't encountered anyone actually interested in anything else yet. Maybe you'll have better luck.

I have teamed up with a local church. This church has about 70 homeless people come in from off the streets for worship and food. Probably about 40 stay for worship. The ones that stay for worship obviously have hopes for something more. Whether that be here or after here. Also, in my experience, half the people that recieved the bags with water, fruit and toiletries helped clean up. i.e. put up chairs, clean bathroom, sweep, pick up garbage. So, I have had better luck than you. You could have the same luck if you would be a little more open minded. I'm gonna give you a link to a newspaper that has articles.

This is an article written by a local homeless man in Jackson, MS.

June 2010
What does it really mean to be homeless? Loneliness. Despair. Constantly have to look over your back because someone wants to take what’s yours. Or having to defend yourself because they see you as weak or vulnerable. The unsanitary conditions in which you are forced to use the bathroom or take a shower. Trying to sit down somewhere because you’re tired from walking all day and the police coming up and telling you can’t be there. “Time to move along.”

People looking at you like you’re diseased, when the only disease you have is inside your head, which is constantly telling you to harm yourself. Not having the money to take the medication you need to make the voices and the depression go away. Stuck in a position you don’t deserve and can’t handle. Always ready to take that last step to be relieved from the constant struggle to keep your sanity, to make it all just go away forever.

I don’t do drugs. I don’t drink. I was forced into this situation because of a series of events and because of a chemical imbalance in my brain that has gotten progressively worse over the years. I’m one of the invisible many sitting under a bridge or walking down the sidewalk on Gallatin Street. You’ve already judged me. I’m one of society’s castoffs. Better for me to just take one last breath and fade away forever so I won’t be judged as a crack head or an alcoholic or have you wonder what diseases I’m infested with.

The voices, the depression are my only constant companions. There’s no hope for me and I have nowhere to go, no place to escape the mind-numbing heat or the storms that are producing tornadoes. I guess I really am a throwaway.

Really? Please explain? They're all degenerate alcoholic slugs where I have worked. Sorry, that has nothing to do with my open/closed mindedness. It is simply reality and it was that way long before I was there. And it still is. Guess what, it always will be. You can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink without drowning it. I'm glad you have success. Apparently the homeless you deal with are not shitheads.

Okay, I agree with you kinda. My sister in law is a drunk. She has been living with us for about 5 months now and she is up and down. I am definately right with you on the horse and water thing. All I am saying is I am sure there are some of those people that just need someone to believe in them. I agree a lot of them are just bums that have given up and don't have anything to live for. All I am saying is when I went to Gravy & Grace at our church; those homeless people were more accepting of help than my freaking sister in law. So, did you ever read that article from the throwaway newspaper?
