Less Homeless Less Heartless

Raised by 10 people in 29 months
Cayci and I are embarking on a 5 week journey to see more of the world, but more importantly change it!

Every year, over 3.5 million people experience homelessness in the U.S.. Our mission is to share the stories and shine light on this well-known, yet often overlooked, issue.

We will be traveling across the country by car, stopping through the states to befriend and listen to the stories of those without or having been without homes . Here is a general outline of our route-
And we are setting our stage with something that everyone uses for comfort and for conversation: benches. These are homemade bences made with donated cinder blocks and 4x4s, similar to the style below.
You will be able to follow our trip through our website (in progress!) which will contain a photo blog and also a podcast, so you can listen to the conversation as if you were there with us. Our podcast will be seperate from the photographs so that faces are not attached to the voices and you can focus solely on what is being said rather than someone's appearance!
Cayci will also be making nothing short of fabulous apparel that people can purchase to help support our project, such as the one below! 
We want to raise awareness on the severity of the problem, and change the perspective of many regarding this matter.

This trip will not be possible without the help of our fellow supporters and artists! If you want to donate, have ideas to make our mission successful, or just want to buy a cool shirt to help the cause, we love them all! Thanks so much already for the love and support we have recieved in the making of this project!

Trip is approaching quickly! We are so excited and thankful to everyone who has contributed :D

So far we have bought the van we needed for the trip, and have about half of the money we need for gas!

We are selling T-Shirts for anyone interested in helping out: head to artforsenses.org and straight to the "smell" tab. These shirts are personally screen printed by Cayci.

We are also currently in partnership with High Hopes Hammocks, a great company to check out- http://www.highhopeshammock.com/

Stay tuned for more exciting updates and news as we are leaving the 27th of June!!
