HomelessFonts – The Way You Can Help

Each design requires expertly picked fonts that will perfectly portray its vision and mood, communicate its ideas and have an impact on the viewers. Fonts speak louder than words, so why not to choose the ones which voices are more expressive? HomelessFonts is a striking collection of fonts created using handwritings of homeless people. These fonts are vibrant, loud and can’t leave anybody indifferent. View all of them, read about their creators and be a part of solution.

Raising of Social Awareness

Today social projects raise people awareness of various problems taking place in the world around. We learn how to be sensitive to others, how to help, and act. The world turns into more charitable, and our hearts become warmer. When we stop being stuck on ourselves, we start being more sociable, extraversive and thoughtful of others. Being conscious all the time, we can make loads of good not only for ourselves, our families, but for people around. How to perform it? If you’re ready to be responsive and be aware about various social programs, you can do it easily. I want to share with you the one presented by Arrels foundation, and it’s called Homeless Fonts.

#nobodysleepingonthestreet

Arrels organization has been paying attention to homeless people of Barcelona for the last 27 years. Its goal is #nobodysleepingonthestreet, the noble mission that takes time and devotion of foundation members. Along with The Cyranos McCann, the advertising agency, they started project HomelessFonts that allows to buy fonts created by needy people with a help of professional typographers. All the money from your purchases go to the authors of the fonts through the Arrels organization. It’s a new way of helping, and it works.

Fonts from Homeless People

Hundreds of us can pass by homeless on the street and ignore these people. The aim of HomelessFonts.org is to make them visible, and this campaign is a powerful awareness-raising tool. Today the collection of HomelessFonts consists of 5 fonts, 2 are coming and 3 fonts need a typographer to become available for use. As it was mentioned, each font was created on the basis of homeless people's writings. The site offers to read the story of each person who stands behind the font. Here is the example of one of them.
