Justin Doering hopes to raise $10,000 on Kickstarter for the Fifty Sandwiches project. He plans to embark on a cross-country trip to offer meals to the homeless in exchange for their stories.
From there, Doering will collect the stories and chronicle his experiences in a book. We’ve embedded a video about this project above.
Here’s more from the Kickstarter page: “By gathering a collective range of perspectives and life stories, Fifty Sandwiches aims to further humanize the homeless. This book will inspire public awareness, using personal anecdotes and challenges to foster the realization that homeless people are not defined by their living situations.”
