Every day it is easy to pass by and ignore those less fortunate, but with these painted homeless signs, it will be difficult to look anywhere else. Designers Kenji Nakayama and Christopher Hope came together in order to help give homeless people a fighting chance.

They photographed various people around the Boston area and then transformed their cardboard signs into painted works of art. These painted signs make it nearly impossible to ignore what they are saying. This is an incredible project to help raise awareness and to try and help the homeless population. Nakayama and Hope also gave these people 10 dollars to accompany their new sign, and hopefully along with that, they were able to restore some of their faith in humanity. These painted homeless signs are a great reminder that we should all help out others when we have the opportunity to do so.
