Homelessness . South Beach . Miami FL . Saturday afternoon, 19 November 2005
The 18th Annual Help the Homeless Walkathon www.fanniemaefoundation.org/about/help_homeless.shtml took place earlier today, in Washington DC. Sponsored by Fannie Mae in years past as an independent contractor in the WDC catering industry who catered many events at Fannie Mae, historically, over a span of several years I would donate my catering services at the annual pre-walkathon event held at Fannie Mae on the eve of the Walkathon as well as donate the photographs that I would take of the Help the Homeless Walkathon.
So, when I'd observe this homeless man fetching for food from a trash can on South Beach earlier today I could not help but reflect on the importance of the annual Help The Homeless Walkathon www.fanniemaefoundation.org/about/help_homeless.shtml.
Had I been in Washington DC ... and as I have done in years past ... there is no doubt that I would have photographed the 18th Annual Help The Homeless Walkathon (www.fanniemaefoundation.org/about/help_homeless.shtml).
