Random Act of Kid-ness: Sleeping in Cold to Raise Money for Homeless

Homeless simulation influences kids to raise more money

This week’s Random Act of Kid-ness comes to us from Dayton, IN, where 23 kids slept in cardboard boxes outdoors to raise money for the homeless. The kids are part of the Overhaul Youth Group from Dayton United Methodist Church, and they got sponsors to help them raise enough money- over $1400- to fill a food truck for the local homeless population. Their youth pastor Austin Bender said:

“A lot of them said they were just thankful for so many little things, like a bed or warmth.”

Because of this, the kids were even more determined to raise money because they realized how much they take for granted that homeless people live without.
