A creative writing contest for the homeless

Veahavta is an organization in Toronto that, among other things, helps people living on or near the streets. A few years ago they started a program which is in my eyes amazingly innovative. It is a creative writing contest for the homeless. This year was its ninth year running.

It’s interesting that being creative when you’re trying to figure out how to help someone can really make the help that much more useful.

Brilliant.
