Look at what Bitcoin made possible -- Hoodie the Homeless

"The constant and unwavering criticism that armchair activists have volleyed in our direction is that they disapprove of “using homeless people as billboards.” And I have been consistent and unwavering in my dismissal of this complaint, because the imprint and the brochure were never intended to advertise a product to consumers. They were intended to advertise Bitcoin to the homeless people themselves. We are saying to the recipients of these hoodies, “Look what Bitcoin made possible. Look how much the Bitcoin community cares about you.” And hopefully, like Robert, that gesture will ingratiate them enough to explore what other opportunities Bitcoin can offer them."
