A group of young Canadians are taking the initiative to help the homeless stay warm this winter by dressing up lamp posts. Tara Smith-Atkins, her eight-year-old daughter, and seven of her daughter’s friends took to the streets in Halifax with bags of winter coats, hats, and scarves

They wrapped the clothing around lamp posts with a hand written tag that reads “I am not lost. If you are stuck out in the cold, please take me to keep warm!

It all began when Smith-Atkins was fretting over how to help the homeless stay warm during the coming winter months. After some brainstorming, she began asking her community for coat donations and winter items still in good shape.

After only two weeks, the family had plenty of items to distribute.

“They definitely learned the importance of it,” Smith-Atkins told CBC News. “When we got back in the car after an hour on the street, they were all freezing and crying for the heater to be on and complaining because they were cold. And they were bundled up.”

Photos of the fashionable poles soon started circulating on social media, with people wondering who was responsible for the gesture.
