A HOMELESS PROJECT BORN OUT OF A NEED TO INSPIRE CHANGE; INSTILL OPTIMISM, BRING AWARENESS AND DELIVER HOPE WHERE HOPE HAS BEEN LOST...
In September of 2007 Jon Linton began gathering imagery to document the homeless on the streets of Phoenix, Arizona. That Fall he volunteered at a local homeless shelter to better understand the circumstance and plight of those without a place to call home. The project took shape, when the first man he photographed wept as he asked his name, “You have no idea how long it has been since someone cared to ask my name”, he stated
Through the course of this journey he has met many souls that through a bad set of circumstances, addiction or mental illness find themselves without a door to walk through at day’s end. They have fallen into what some refer to as an “Invisible World". This project is our humble attempt to bring dignity and humanity to those less fortunate among us.
As we celebrate the fourth annual "Come Together Benefit" we remind ourselves to be eternally grateful for the abundance we enjoy in this life. We'll be supporting our local homeless outreach organization led by Jon Linton: Let's Be Better Humans.
Please find it in your hearts to make a donation to radically transform the lives of extreme poverty in this world.
This year Come Together 4.0 will be hosted at Cactus Jacks on September 27-29. Our fundraising goal is $3,000.
