Sometimes huge problems have a tiny solution! Right now, one in 30 American kids are homeless, according to The National Center on Family Homelessness – an all time high for the United States. This may seem like an insurmountable problem, but co-founders Michael Parker and Margarita Hickerson of a California based non-profit called SquareChange created a tiny solution that is making huge impact by taking an innovative approach to solving child homelessness in America. SquareChange is building homes for homeless kids “One square foot at a time” through donation-based micro finance. But they want you to take the spotlight – when you donate, each physical square foot built in your name! “When you build a square, your donation converts directly into building blocks that create sustainable housing and community structures for kids and families experiencing hardship.” At only $2 per square, housing philanthropic power has shifted into your hands.
