I'm from San Diego area too and I think I recognise the area - Is that last picture near the library downtown?? Smiley

I love this idea! Very cool!

yup! Around the library and the post office!

I just hope they truly reached the needy and that they didn't get swiped by people who have enough to buy hats for themselves.

hey, all we can do IS hope! Wink

But those were just regular people taking them...you should have handed them out or hung them near troubled areas.

I'm guessing you've mis-read or overlooked, but i did mention that we hung the hats where many homeless people resided. San Diego's downtown may be clean and have million dollar homes, but the homeless has been there since forever and they're not moving.

And how could you tell that "regular" people took the hats?! Can't judge that sole photo of the lady picking the hat thinking she's wasn't homeless nor in need! That's ignorant assumptions.

I agree.
The hats will be taken by people who need them.
And no, you cannot judge that from the way someone looks.
One doesn't even need to be homeless to be in need of some warmth and love in ones live.
Yay for your wonderful project!
People like you make this world a better place.
Happy New Year!

Cool project.

I like how you just put them out there and let anyone have them, didn't add any "advertisement"  or other information about yourselves to the heart cards. As far as the people who passed them and maybe took one knew, the hats just fell outta the sky with no strings attached (no pun intended).

Anonymous charity is beautiful and truly selfless. I'm always disappointed when folks do something nice but then ruin it by making sure to get their faces and deeds out there by calling the newsvan or whatever. They may have SOME charitable leanings, but at least part of what they're doing is getting strokes for themselves, which is NOT self-less. I keep thinking of Brad Pitt's multiple photo ops down here in N.O.. He does a little something and makes sure everybody and their paran knows about it. There are lots of famous and wealthy folks here doing much more good and without any fanfare at all. Makes Pitt look like an opportunistic sleeze to use the disaster for his own press purposes. Urk.
