jaybeezey: ZeroPly: This is great PR, but... and I'm taking a really wild guess here - I think the #1 priority for the homeless is to stop being homeless...So if you could use your money to buy a senator or two, and push for better social services, that would be more productive than giving a bunch of people with no safe place to store sh*t $300 each. Maybe you can hand out those newfangled bulletproof blankets while you're at it.You might be surprised that this is not the case for many of the homeless.
vudukungfu: spending money mostly on luxuriesI can't afford to be altruistic, like this guy.
tbeatty: ZeroPly: This is great PR, but... and I'm taking a really wild guess here - I think the #1 priority for the homeless is to stop being homeless...You're guess would be wrong. Homelessness in the U.S. is generally by choice. There are certainly transitory periods by certain people and families but long term homelessness has issues beyond simply ending homelessness. If he's treating a group of homeless men to lunch, I doubt very much that finding a place to live is on their bucket list.
SphericalTime: This seems like the sort of fanciful luxury impulse buy that he's trying to disprove. Starting a charity to combat homelessness and poverty would be a lot more helpful.
