The Free Thought Project,The Daily Sheeple & FREEDOM OR ANARCHY Campaign of Conscience are dedicated to holding those who claim authority over our lives accountable. “Each of us has a unique part to play in the healing of the world.”
“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.” - George Orwell, 1984

"Until the philosophy which holds one race superior and another inferior is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned, everywhere is war and until there are no longer first-class and second-class citizens of any nation, until the color of a man's skin is of no more significance than the color of his eyes. And until the basic human rights are equally guaranteed to all without regard to race, there is war. And until that day, the dream of lasting peace, world citizenship, rule of international morality, will remain but a fleeting illusion to be pursued, but never attained... now everywhere is war." - - Haile Selassie I of Ethiopia - Popularized by Bob Marley in the song War

STEALING FROM THE CITIZENRY

The right to tell the Government to kiss my Ass Important Message for All Law Enforcers Freedom; what it is, and what it is not. Unadulterated freedom is an unattainable goal; that is what the founders of America knew and understood, which was their impetus behind the documents that established our great nation. They also knew that one of the primary driving forces in human nature is the unconscious desire to be truly free. This meant to them that mankind if totally left completely unrestricted would pursue all things in life without any awareness or acknowledgement of the consequences of his/her own actions leaving only the individual conscience if they had one as a control on behavior. This would not bode well in the development of a great society. Yet the founders of America chose to allow men/women as much liberty as could be, with minimum impact on the freedom or liberties of others

How You Can Help Homeless People with a Personal Touch

In an often uncaring world it's important that we reach out to each other. You can give to the homeless in an indirect way (and you should if you want to) but giving and caring directly gives them something beyond price - human contact and recognition.
Perhaps the most painful part of homelessness for me was the isolation. At times, I felt there was no one in the world who saw me as a human being. While I have a hard time with eye contact myself, I saw that no one met my eyes; they turned their heads and hurried along.
By giving directly to homeless people you give a gift of recognizing their humanity and improving their sense of dignity and self-esteem. The items listed may not be dramatically life changing but they can serve as an excuse to approach someone who needs your voice, someone who needs to know that someone cares.
Most of the gifts listed below are less than $10 each and many are less than a dollar. So for the cost of a fancy coffee you can make a few lives a little better.
For your convenience, I've listed an online source for some items below their descriptions in case you don't have time to go out and shop for these small gifts.
We @ veterans project also build and hand out survival packs this short Video will show you some of the things we give and hand out to those in need when we have the funds and resources such as contributions and donations or personal funds are available A contribution of $25,will provide one full service pack for individual in need and a $10 contribution will help veterans project feed one individual for 2 days

Mylar Emergency Blankets

Warming gifts

Mylar blankets make great gifts for homeless people whether the weather is warm or cold. Mylar emergency blankets can keep in warmth better than any other available blanket of their size but they can also be turned around and used to keep heat off.

Mylar blankets come folded up tight into neat, pocket-sized packets which is why they are perhaps the best blankets to get for people with very little space to store them.

Keep It Warm or Cool

Mylar blankets or Mylar sleeping bags make thoughtful gifts. They are often sold near camping equipment in sporting good stores.

I've found Mylar sleeping bags to be particularly good at trapping heat in.

Bring a Little Warmth Along With You 

While hand warmers or even the bigger warmers aren't enough to really keep a person warm they do provide a little extra comfort for cold hands.

Hand Warmers

Those little disposable hand warmers can provide warmth and comfort on cold days and nights. Even in warmer climates, homeless people get cold at night.

Disposable shoe warmers also make great gifts for homeless people. Shoe warmers are usually found near hand warmers and other types of disposable heat packs. Heat packs like these can usually be found in sporting goods departments and sporting goods stores. They can also often be found in dollar stores. I took the picture of the hand warmer display in a dollar store.

Granola Bars, Energy Bars, Cookies, Individually Wrapped Snacks 

Granola bars or energy bars are packed with calories and nutrients yet they are light and easy to carry, they taste good, and they don't spoil easily.

Granola bars make nice little gifts because it's easy to slip a handful of them into your pocket in case you run into someone who is homeless. They are also almost universally appreciated because they won't spoil or make a mess in a homeless person's pocket, backpack, or bag.
Unfortunately, many homeless people have problems with their teeth. So it's probably a good idea to also have some individually wrapped snacks that are softer, like soft cookies, little cakes, or even individual cups of apple sauce with plastic spoons taped on top.

Bottled WaterGatorade  

In the summer, most homeless people can't get out of the heat so gifts like bottled water or Gatorade can help them to avoid heatstroke. If you put the bottles in your freezer overnight, they'll provide even more cooling power.

Moist Towelettes

It's really, really hard to stay clean when you don't have a bathroom of your own. Moist towelettes can help a homeless person feel cleaner when no access to running water is available. I've found that moist towelettes are good for quickly dealing with stains on clothing before they set.

Moist towelettes are nice for after meal clean up and just to get the dust off your hands and face whenever you want.

Hats

A lot of heat can be lost through an uncovered head in cold weather. Hats are probably the single most effective item of clothing to keep a person warmer.
You can buy cheap knit hats at most discount stores such as Family Dollar, Big Lots, and Dollar General. The ones in the photo were at Dollar Tree for just one dollar each.
Knit hats make great gifts even during warmer weather because they can also help keep hair cleaner when sleeping outside as well as keeping heads warmer in the cold.

Gloves

Gloves can keep homeless hands warm in cold weather and at night in warmer weather.
You can often find those stretchy, one-size-fits-all gloves at dollar and discount stores for about a dollar in many dollar and discount stores.

Magic Stretch Gloves

One size fits most stretchy gloves are a good choice because they, well, fit most.

Dental Care Items

It's hard to keep up with dental hygiene when you are homeless so a toothbrush and a sample-sized tube of toothpaste make another great, compact gift. 
You can find these items at big box stores like Target and Walmart, in dollar stores, and in drug stores, often in the sample size aisle. These items usually cost under a dollar.

Compact First Aid Kits

A compact basic first aid kit would be welcomed by many homeless people.

Combs

Combs are one of the easiest small gifts to find and to carry. They are also easy to lose so replacements are often very welcome. They are durable and take up very little space.
You can get a big package of combs for just a few dollars at most discount stores. You can also find them in dollar stores and big box stores.

The Basic Black Comb

If you ever had school pictures as a child, you ought to recognize these. The basic black plastic comb is still the easiest to carry, most compact hair grooming tool.

Canteens

It can be hard to find a drinking fountain every single time you need a drink. A canteen can provide a way to carry a good supply of water around easily. Regular water bottles are good, too, but they are not as easy to carry if one is carrying all of his or her possessions around, too.
Canteens are harder to find than many of the other items on this page but they make wonderful gifts for homeless people. You can find them online and in military surplus stores. Also, they can sometimes be found in the sporting goods departments of department stores.
I like the military or Boy Scout styled canteens that are covered in fabric and have a strong carrying strap.

Old-Fashioned Canteens

Basic, old-fashioned canteens work very well for people who walk around a lot and have limited access to drinking water.
Fury Blanket Cover Canteen, 2 Quart with Shoulder Strap
Fury Blanket Cover Canteen, 2 Quart with Shoulder Strap
The shoulder strap makes this canteen easy to carry around.

Drink Mix Packets

Homeless people can usually get access to water but water can get boring sometimes. Drink mixes such as hot cocoa envelopes or fruit flavored drinks also provide calories and sometimes other nutrients. Instant breakfast packets (the ones that don't take milk) are really great because they provide a meal as well as a beverage that is a treat. It's easy to carry a few in your purse or pocket in case you run into someone who might like some.

Hand Sanitizer

Hand sanitizer, used properly may kill the flu virus and prevent the spread of germs.
Purse sized sanitizer gel is another cheap and easy gift to carry around. I also like the individual packets of hand sanitizer or wipes impregnated with hand sanitizer as they won't leak as easily or as much fluid if they do.

Sanitizer for Better Hygiene

Hand sanitizer is good to have around when access to running water and soap is not always a given.

Sewing Kits

When your resources are limited, a sewing kit can help keep clothing in good repair. Sewing kits make very practical gifts and are both very portable and very inexpensive. I strongly recommend the kind that come in sturdy, reusable cases.

This is one of the better travel sewing kits for the price. Other kits have cheap plastic boxes that come apart too easily. This one actually holds up to use for a while.





Note from the Founder of VeteransProject Joseph F Barber,

Many will tell you That ,The lord only helps those who help themselves !!! and will not help those who may have issues beyond anyone's control and yet many of those who may be asking for help have worked their whole lives and yet life has a funny sense of humor, I heard and then what of the others those that have lost their way and can not seem to find their way back to life or what they once had ,again life has a funny sense of humor yet cruel, for me to hear another say such things as the lord only helps those who do not help themselves ,“There is some kind of a sweet innocence in being human- in not having to be just happy or just sad- in the nature of being able to be both broken and whole, at the same time.” ,and If I am correct we were created by god and we are human !! , I do not think people truly understand the meaning of the words they read or do they have an understanding or and awakening to the true meaning of love and god!!! , I think the best way to put this is simply this , for god so loved the world he gave his only son , tell me my friends what would you not do for your son or daughter's !!! and that is exactly what god expects of us and each and for each other and our world. Know this brothers & Sisters,Patriots and citizens alike, We are all in this together no matter race color or creed or the issues we may have or the idealism that hold us from awakening to the truth and one another ,“But if I'm it, the last of my kind, the last page of human history, like hell I'm going to let the story end this way. I may be the last one, but I am the one still standing. I am the one turning to face the faceless hunter in the woods on an abandoned highway. I am the one not running but facing. Because if I am the last one, then I am humanity. And if this is humanity's last war, then I am the battlefield.” Who of you will stand with me my countrymen,

Joseph F Barber,Founder
of The Veterans Project 

On a personal Note: I would like to say something that many in our world and country to today seem to be afraid or ashamed of or admit is their faith it is my personal opinion that we should trouble no one about their faith and yet many do in these troubled times, we are all haveing to live and there are many who ask me where I stand and to that it is with god no matter what you may call him & my countrymen and women When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, 'I used everything you gave me'. There have been those that have asked me why it is I do these things am I trying to change the world or our country and my answer to that is simple this I do the things I do not to change the world or are country but so our country and our world does not change me and make me like it a machine cold and without compassion for life and those things in it,And I close with this final word to all who read this article with my words of faith and truth of who I am Just so everyone is perfectly clear as to where I stand in my Faith as a Christian and to god “I am a strong Christian. Not a perfect one—not close. But I strongly believe in God, Jesus, and the Bible. When I die, God is going to hold me accountable for everything I've done on earth. He may hold me back until last and run everybody else through the line, because it will take so long to go over all my sins.” Honestly, I don’t know what will really happen on Judgment Day. But what I lean toward is that you know all of your sins, and God knows them all, and shame comes over you at the reality that He knows. I believe the fact that I’ve accepted Jesus as my savior will be my salvation.

Not a perfect one—not close. But I strongly believe in God, Jesus, and the Bible. When I die, God is going to hold me accountable for everything I've done on earth. He may hold me back until last and run everybody else through the line, because it will take so long to go over all my sins.” Honestly, I don’t know what will really happen on Judgment Day. But what I lean toward is that you know all of your sins, and God knows them all, and shame comes over you at the reality that He knows. I believe the fact that I’ve accepted Jesus as my savior will be my salvation.
