The sad, abandoned Christmas trees that lie bare and cold on our streets are a powerful metaphor to remind the public that homelessness is everywhere, especially at Christmas.

There's certainly an idea here. I'm just not sure it's tied together yet. Maybe I'm just missing it and someone can explain it to me. I know that the discarded christmas tree represents a homeless person during the holidays. Maybe the tagline isn't tying it all together? I don't know...there's something...

I was thinking the same thing. It feels a bit disconnected, I didn't get it right away that the Christmas Tree was representing homeless people. It needed that added description below the piece to help me understand it which, to be honest, makes the piece fail in my opinion.
