I think the instant homeless shelter idea taxi had a while ago (you know, that wearable one) was better. while in competition with that one this would lose out (imho), I'm all for making some dough for the cause and it's not like this was horrible.

Is this 'inspired' (ripped off) from that artist that did an exhibition of churches done in cardboard?

Anyway, its interesting, but ultimately I don't buy that it made much of a difference.

what a waste of cardboard. Inhabit it with 100,000 homeless people and do something with your message.

this idea worked because people felt that all they had to do was click and they would make a difference so why on earth not!! the idea was well executed.
