In April 2008 Molly McKeown was walking in the Village of Carlsbad to a friend’s house. During her walk she was approached by several homeless asking for a meal or money to buy food. Having nothing to give them, Molly continued on her way. In that moment, her eyes were suddenly opened to the needs of the homeless in her community.
She had never noticed them before; a group sitting at the fountain, a man sleeping at the Coaster station, a woman walking her bike down the sea wall. Distressed by the number of people who approached her and heart-broken that she had nothing to give them, Molly began to contemplate what she could do. What did she possibly have to give?
