It is easy to take certain luxuries in life for granted. People from a middle class demographic might not always stop to realize just how lucky they are to wake up every morning to utilities such as running water, proper heating, food, and entertainment. For the 2.5 million children that are rendered homeless in the United States each year, having just one of these resources would drastically improve their quality of life. Unfortunately, there is only so much that can be done to make a difference.
