Note: Sept. 1st, the Girl’s Guide to Homelessness was down for about 6 hours. Not sure if the server was overloaded by traffic or what, but I’m so sorry if you couldn’t get here! Please feel free to come back again and comment/e-mail
Elle.com has offered me the forum to blog on their website, in addition to my internship with E. Jean Carroll (which starts tomorrow over at AskEJean.com). I hope to use it to continue advocating for homelessness, as well as addressing lighter topics along the line of fashion and lifestyle. I have already caused something of a stir over there, it would seem, and a little controversy, which is fantastic – I care less about whether people love me or hate me, than I do about actually getting people talking about homelessness, and challenging prejudices, seeing the people and stories behind ridiculous slurs like “bum”.
Associated Press has just released an article on the story, so Matt and I are super-hyped about that, and bracing for whatever is to come. This is all just overwhelming and insanity and has kind of sent me reeling, ever since I caught wind of it from an awesome blog called SaveTheAssistants.com.
I have received a TON of emails and comments from people who have been following the story, been inspired in some way, or had some concerns/questions. Please know that I read each and every one and am in the process of responding – it’s a real mountain of stuff for me to wade through, along with everything else going on!
Thanks so much for your continued support, and for taking an interest in homelessness!
P.S. Yes, I’m well aware that the photographer’s odd perspective in this pic makes Matt look like a Munchkin and Fezzik like a Black Lab, at biggest… They’re not. Matt is actually much taller than me, and Fez is a beefcake with a big blocky head.
