Introduction

My husband and I exited downtown Los Angeles late one night after a BABYLAND concert with our two young sons in March, 2004. We were stunned by the vast numbers of people sleeping on the concrete sidewalks throughout the Skid Row area. Many had nothing more than the clothes they were wearing and a cardboard box for shelter. It had an especially profound effect on our oldest son, Andrew, who was 8 years old at the time, and a Cub Scout in Pack #735. He asked us, “Why are people sleeping on the street?” We continued to discuss the matter as a family over the next few weeks, as he repeatedly brought up the subject. One particularly cold and rainy night, in the midst of our conversation, the CAMPAIGN FOR CARE project was conceived. My husband and I felt that we had the choice of either telling our little boy that nothing could be done to help, or showing him that you can make a difference, no matter how small, in someone’s life.
