It is, also, 'Coming Out Day!'
On this day, you can celebrate by helping to raise awareness for the homeless in your own community. Grassroots campaigns and fundraisers work at the local level, while taking advantage of the increased publicity and solidarity a global platform provides.
Use this Day as an opportunity to educate people about the homeless in your area, the infrastructure that already exists to help them and how it can be improved. World Homeless Day fundraisers and celebrations can be converted into gains which will help the homeless long after the Day is over.
