Thank you Dose of Society for shining a light on the homeless epidemic in Los Angeles. We are honored to be featured.
REPOST from @doseofsociety
Welcome to the homeless capital of America - Skid Row, Los Angeles. There are roughly 60,000 Los Angeles residents who are currently homeless.
Every week, @brownbaglady_ and her team hit the streets of Skid Row and provide meals and showers for the homeless. They have fed over 20,000+ people in the past few years.
Watch her inspiring story here!

Rents in Los Angeles County are INSANE!! Car insurance is stooopid expensive, and for a city of this size, our public transportation is not the greatest, so you are pretty much forced to have a car. Combine those 3 factors alone, and you have a homeless crisis.
THANK YOU @doseofsociety for including us in your documentary. We are honored and we will continue to fight the good fight!

Jacqueline Norvell is on a mission to help
the homeless one brown bag at a time!
YouTube's "60 Second Docs" introduced us to this charitable pioneer. Jacqueline, better known as The Brown Bag Lady, started her L.A.-based non-profit with hunger and compassion in mind. She and her crew pack 200 bag lunches every month to hand out amongst the less fortunate in the city's Skid Row.
Not only do they come equipped with food and free haircuts, but the most valuable thing she prides herself on offering is a smile.
THANK YOU 60 Second Docs for helping shine light on this homeless epidemic in Los Angeles. It was an absolute honor to spend the afternoon with Christopher Stoudt.
Because of your donations, Brown Bag Lady is able to hand out scholarships to college-bound youth who are both academic superstars and active in their community.

WHAT. A. NIGHT! My feet still haven't touched the ground. The love I felt in that ballroom, sitting in between my brother who flew in from Florida and my best-friend who flew in from Georgia. Looking at the table to my right and seeing my baby cousin and her mother who surprised me from Northern California. And a table of 10 attorneys from my firm that I absolutely love, to my left. All of my peeps at my table ... BEAMING when they looked at me, as if their child had just won the National Spelling Bee! Cheering, applauding, a standing ovation! I don't have words to articulate how I felt. How I still feel. The fact that the Century City Chamber of Commerce acknowledged Brown Bag Lady! Hopefully these pics will give you a glimpse into my heart.
