When you see people sitting next to a tent on the street, have you spoken to them? Have you looked into their eyes and smiled?
These are things most of us do without thinking about it … when we meet someone who looks like us.
Recently I went to the Skid Row area of Los Angeles with a friend who knows these streets. He is Alan Pinel, the President of The Burrito Project. With donations, he and dozens of volunteers make and take hundreds of burritos to the homeless each month.
Alan has a heart bigger than anyone I know – A humble man who lives to give. He gave his time to come with me asking nothing in return.
Please take a few minutes to view a video or two of Alan’s Burrito Project. Learn how you can help by donating food or funds, or by joining the volunteer “party!” The Burrito Project, Los Angeles

The next time you see someone who is living on the street, stop for a moment. Just for a moment. Look into their eyes. Smile. Both your heart and theirs will be touched.
