Does anyone else know people who are in something like this? Kids from the local church all gather outside of a Supermarket, find boxes and other items, have to beg for food from people who come out of the store, and then sleep in the box over night. It's supposed to teach the kids what its like to be homeless.

I think it shows you what its like and its kinda cool. But the area where I live in is a pretty rich area. Kinda funny though, its raining outside and some people have left saying its "too hard." Real homeless people can't just leave.

So do I live in the only area that does this?

What's the point in giving a homeless person a box? They usually already have one.

sounds like those kids from your local church are pussies.

edit: they should start a turf war with the homeless people. one month, each kid gets half a box, a dirty starbucks cup to collect change, and a broken bottle; no money/food/clothes from the parentals, and no quitting early. no particular reason, but i think it has potential for epicness.

In Edmonton one of the local news anchors is homeless for a day, he slept in a dumpster and the garbage truck almost dumped him into the compactor.

I don't think they should be allowed to just give up.

I think they should be required to stay for 24 hours.

If someone doesn't stay, I think his/her name should be put on a list with a picture on the front page of the newspaper.

I was thinking they should have a giant man named Goliath who stands at the entrance and if you try to leave he gets to sit on you.

How about take the homeless and give them a home for one night while the kids get to see what a homeless person actually acts like? Sounds kinda stupid tbh.

well he's an idiot. you'd think that if it's not sub-zero tmperatures he'd be warm and safe enough sleeping behind the dumpster, like a normal news anchorman.

geez, i hate that! i bet they didn't even see any homeless people. and begging in front of a supermarket with kids is half-assing it too. go make them sleep under a highway overpass, i've been through Austin and it scares the hell out of me to see people with sleeping bags on that steep concrete right next to traffic.

Here is the setup of the event. They all get dropped off (with their coats, clothes, boxes, etc) in the parking lot of the Kroger (down the street from me across from a neighborhood where the cheapest house its 1.2 mill.) Then they all sit at the entrance to the store and ask for food. Some kids have their parents buy them food then walk out and give it to them.

The whole event is a disgrace. There aren't any homeless people around for miles. Besides, if you're homeless in my area, you are wealthy hobo.

yeah, that's cheating, if they wanted to be anything like a real homeless experience they would drop them off in the ghetto.

There's one homeless dude who lives near me that is reportedly a genius, and a former professor at a university. He lives in the park in the summer, and, in the winter, sleeps in these big vent things by the university's indoor swimming pool that always shoot hot air.

Further proof that he is a genius. Sleeping next to the hot air.
