Yesterday morning I came across an article about a young New York City software engineer named Patrick McConlogue that made a proposition to a homeless man named Leo on the city streets:
1) $100 to do whatever he chose with it, or
The man opted for the coding instruction.
I applaud Patrick McConlogue. Why? Not because he is solving the issue of homelessness which is a major problem in the United States, but because he has taken on the challenge to help one individual with his struggle. Instead of ignoring Leo as he sat on the streets of New York City each day Patrick chose to approach him with a proposition. Patrick is receiving social media backlash beyond belief for his efforts. He also is receiving some praise. I look forward to reading about their journey and hope to learn a thing or two myself. What do you think?
