National Roof Over Your Head Day is celebrated on December 3rd in America. This is a special day for every person living in a house or apartment. It’s so great to have your own corner, to return to it from work, to equip it according to your own taste … Today people gather together and say words of gratitude for what they have!
National Day was created not only for a festive mood – today important problems that exist in the world are raised. Many people do not have a permanent place of residence, they have to wander, spend the night on the street, beg. Some of them lead an unhealthy lifestyle. It’s sad because 100 million people on the planet are on the street right now!
Homelessness can be fought only by uniting. The purpose of the holiday is to tell people about the required help, which is needed here and now. On the date, a real insight comes to many that they already have a lot in life so as not to complain about fate and have a bad mood.
During the existence of the problem, various organizations have been invented to help people. They create shelters, rooming houses, provide free food. Many institutions assist in finding a job – it is clear that if a person wants to change his life for the better, he uses all the options that come his way!
Did you know that:
- most of the American homeless are concentrated in Florida, California, New York;
- according to real statistics, every 50th child in the United States at some point will begin to wander (we hope that together the numbers will decrease!);
- some research suggests that the human brain associates the vagrant as an inanimate object;
- in Japan, a generation of young Japanese live in Internet cafes for a long time. Here they sleep, eat, have fun.
