On an outing from Mar Vista to Pasadena during my quest to play tennis on every public court in Los Angeles, I counted:

* 7 people walking 10 dogs;

* 11 people who looked like they were experiencing homelessness;

* 43 tents on sidewalks; and

* 1 person helping someone pile their stuff into a shopping cart after it had spilled all over the bike lane.

I want to be like that person.


I’m sure you want to help, too. That’s why I have started a fundraiser for Project Ropa, a non-profit providing clean clothes and hygiene kits to people experiencing homelessness in LA. It’s like a walk-a-thon but rather a court-a-thon in honor of my reaching the halfway point of my quest. Please consider making your own contribution and sharing this post with your network. Thanks!
