Max, 6, doesn't know that we know someone who is homeless. A child. A family without a home. Our good friend Lilo asked all her friends to donate $12 since that was the biggest number she could think of that day. Will you join us in giving $12 to the Be Homeful emergency fund to help a family in New Haven (a place that we once called home for five years) never know what it's like to be homeless? $12. Cheaper than a Manhattan (drink). $12.
