ReThink Homelessness has found a way to reshape the public's view on homeless people by simply handing them cardboards so they could write down a fact about themselves. Their stories can be more surprising than you thought.

By reading the poignant facts displayed on the cardboards, we can understand better the diverse struggles that led these individuals to such a challenging situation. The video also showcases how, despite poverty, homeless people have dreams and admirable values just like everyone else, as well as an impressive set of skills and education that could outrun many in the current workforce.

It also acts as a reminder that poverty is a social problem we should all care about and how nobody is totally sheltered from it. So next time you see a homeless person on the street, think twice before jumping to conclusions; he/she might have been through much worse than you.
