Unknown: No Home for the Holidays


This is the third post in a series written by a dear friend. She has a huge heart for unknown and forgotten children. Over the next weeks, she will be sharing their stories.

It’s the holidays and it’s a tough time to be homeless but it’s particularly hard for kids on the street. Every day is hard when you are homeless but when you are a kid and you see the world celebrating the holidays its kind of like the world is throwing a great big party but you aren’t invited.  Not only are you not invited, but while the world is having caviar and drinking champagne you are digging through trashcans and hoping the Mission in town is serving a hot meal. It might look fun in a movie to be “home alone” at Christmas, but when you have no home, and no parents who are frantically looking for you, being alone at the holidays isn’t fun at all.
