Building tiny homes for the homeless


Video Source

Having to the push and pull with local authorities about a charity project is saddening. Imagine denying people the right to enjoy a housing project? However, there must be reasons why local authority opposes such a project.In the video ‘The man building tiny homes for the homeless in Los Angeles,’ such a scenario is portrayed. Elvis in the video, is passionate about helping the homeless get shelter.

He builds lovely tiny houses, but Miller also ensures that he finds a location to place the structures. This is a high form of generosity, considering the pressure from the local authority. However, the local authority displaces the people on the streets, including their stuff due to maintenance services such as cleaning the streets.

As much as the housing is needed, clean streets are vital too. Cleaning the streets improves the city’s look and protects the individuals from getting diseases, and infection brought about a dirty environment.

Homelessness is slowly becoming a major concern globally. The cost of living has forced people to live on the streets or seek alternative temporary places. Many people cannot raise the money required for their basic needs; food, shelter and clothing. Lack of jobs or rather well-paying jobs is one of the reasons why people find themselves homeless.

Being homeless puts a family at risk of cold-related diseases. Having a shelter is an integral part of people’s lives. For this reason, charities have been brought up to minimize the rising cases of people being homeless. Such individuals may also struggle to put food on the table. It is not easy to be scared of not having your stuff in a safe place; what are they stolen when you are not around?

Not only do the individuals on the streets get their things missing, the local authority considers temporary housing as illegal. For this reason, during the maintenance services, the local authority team picks the stuff and terms it as trash.

Engaging in charity takes the values and principles of an individual. It is a moral duty to the rest of the society to ensure that every member has shelter, food and clothes; the basic needs. Everyone would wish to have a house to call home despite not having the ability to own one. It does not matter what you do for a living. Whatever resources you may have that are necessary for a particular charity project will go along way in assisting the less fortunate.

For instance, when participating in this building project, Elvis makes the tiny houses and needs to transport them to where he finds best for placement. This means that there is a need to have the right equipment to facilitate the movement. Do you do forklift business? You can engage by offering forklift rentals at a lower fee or free to help the homeless get tiny homes.

$1300 Car Repair Charity For Amazing Family


Video Source

Give Back Films is an organization that does good deeds for people who deserve it. In this video, the hosts pay the car repair bill for a family that can’t afford to pay it. The whole thing is recorded, with the parents coming into the auto repair shop in order to record a testimonial about the shop in exchange for a discount. But when they arrive, they find out that the entire bill has been covered by Give Back Films. The parents are emotional as they find out, and even more so when the hosts hand them a five hundred dollar Walmart gift card to buy groceries and a Wii video game system for their daughters. As the hosts explain, the parents adopted two children with special needs, providing them with a loving home at their own expense.

The process to adopt their first daughter took five years and cost twenty-five thousand dollars. This process was severely impacted when their savings were wiped out after the father lost his job during the Great Recession. But through hard work, persistence, and multiple creative fundraisers, they were able to raise the money and finally adopt their first little girl from an orphanage in China. Afterward, when the opportunity to adopt another girl from China with the same medical condition arose, they repeated the process without hesitation. This couple goes through life selflessly caring for those around them. So when their repair bills started to pile up after an accident, the shop providing the auto repair services contacted Give Back Films in hopes that they could help repay that kindness.

Adoption is a process that takes a great deal of money, determination, and selflessness. This family’s financial situation has fluctuated greatly over time and in this video, they are left with bills that they are struggling to pay. Things like auto repairs are expenses that most families will have and these repairs are usually necessary for the family to be able to access transportation in their everyday lives. When someone who has given so much to those in need needs this kind of basic help for themself, often the community notices. That was the case here. The family didn’t request charity or assistance for themselves. Instead, it was the auto shop employees who decided to step up, showing that doing good works can have both an immediate and long term effect when you least expect it.
