“When you are living on the streets it’s nearly impossible to carry files and paperwork. Many people experiencing homelessness keep their resumes and important documents on USB thumb drives. Something as simple as a flash drive can be a huge help.”
“This got me thinking; we all have extra USB flash drives not being used. Often they are given to us as swag at conventions. I bet you all have a few lying around. So let’s put those old thumb drives we are not using to good use by giving a “thumbs up” to a homeless friend.”
Social Media Tulsa member Randall Weiss‘s comment on the post, further confirmed that this was something we should do in Tulsa.
In July, Randall invited me to one of his poetry readings. I got to know a lot more about what Randall does, and who Randall is. During our conversation, Randall told me about Third Thursday Poetry , that idea generated another idea. What if we combined the poetry reading event with a Thumbs up for Homeless meetup…. and it’s a GO!
Bonus! Social Media Tulsa member and poet, Regina Ann will also be reading.
