Anything Helps, God Bless!


I will share 20 slides that document the lives of street panhandlers. We all know they make big bucks putting the touch on complete strangers, right? Also included will be slides from my try at panhandling.

The subject is a serious matter, but the people have a sense of humor and their stories are worth hearing.
