Today’s “Be A Hero” challenge comes from a story by CNN’s Christopher Dawson on ‘out-of-the-box’ shelter solutions for the homeless.
As Dawson writes, when the weather turns cold, there are always pleas from shelters for blankets and warm clothes to help homeless people.
But some iReporters have come up with less predictable ways to help the homeless.
Tina Hovsepian devised an origami-style shelter out of cardboard that can be easily folded and carried. Another group in California, Everyone Deserves a Roof, has come up with a four-wheel pushcart that transforms into a one-person tent at night.
