Shaniera Akram wants people to start remaining mindful of their privilege if they were able to seek shelter and warmth during these cold months. The social worker today posted a long note on her Instagram where she spoke about her latest initiative to donate old jackets and sweaters to the poor people in the streets in order to help them stay warm as the month gets colder and rainy weather begins.
On her Instagram post, Shaniera said that she wants every person out there to be considerate about those who are less privileged than them, and spoke about how her experience was like:
No I’m not posting these pictures for praise, I’m merely reminding everyone who sleeps in a warm bed at night that the cold months brings so many problems for people out on the street. These people are sooo grateful, the smiles I received today will stay in my heart forever. One little boy was bare foot and wet from rain and when I gave him a hoodie he gave me a smile like I had just given him a million dollars.
