Das Project ‘Signs for the Homeless‘ ist von Kenji Nakayama and Christopher Hope, welche die Pappschilder von Obdachlosen ordentlich getunet haben. Auf deren Tumblr-Blog gibt es all ihre “Pappwerke” zu sehen und von jeder Person sogar ein kleines Interview.
Artists Kenji Nakayama and Christopher Hope came up with this genius and inspirational idea to take homeless peoples’ signs and trade them for beautiful hand-painted ones with the same message. In addition to painting these lovely signs, they also give them donations to help them out. The vivid new signs are much easier for passers-by to spot, which gives them a better chance of receiving help.
