An Invitation

Invite a homeless person for a cup of coffee

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.

An invitation:

Invite a ‘homeless’ person to walk with you into a coffee shop. Buy them a cup of coffee.

Be engaging and present with this person. Even if it is only a warm smile.

Notice how everyone gazes and reacts to you. How does this make you feel?

After you pay. Walk out with this person. Say thank you and goodbye.

Be acutely aware of how you feel at this moment and the rest of the day.

An intimate suggestion on how to personally deal with our own issues regarding the homeless.
