A Christmas Wish

By Moggie

What do I wish for Christmas?

Well, it's a wish I wish for the homeless...

...and not just for Christmas Day.

I wish every homeless person had a place of their own rather than be out on the streets.

It doesn't have to be something luxurious and big.

It just needs a roof to keep out the snow and the rain.

*pat pat pat*

With something comfortable to sleep on...

...to be well-rested and ready for the next day.

With a washroom to get cleaned up, and to have a place to "go" with some privacy and dignity...

Smooooke, on dah wah-ter, fire inna sky!

*bzzzzzzzzz*

...and to take some pride in one's appearance.

With a phone to make an appointment, to see a barber....

*tremble*

....a dentist (yeah, hate them too)...

....or schedule an interview after applying for a job.

I GOT THE JOB!

..yet this is the case and why we need more affordable housing....

It's funny how something that is a basic essential need is priced like a luxury item....

I hope one day it will come true.

...and why I made this Christmas wish today.

I want to thank everyone who gave this comic a lot of love and support, and for Pixton for the 1st place win.

The Salvation Army had a wonderful slogan during their "End Poverty" campaign two years ago:

We keep making better things... maybe we should ask ourselves "why can't we make things better?".

It's a great question. I shake my head at the realization that technology has increased productivity but not the standard of living for all in the West. Something is wrong here, and this was the reason why I wanted to make this comic. It's a wish I want for everyone out there.

The rather spartan look was intentional. I wanted to show it really does not take much to get the homeless back to becoming productive members of society who are financially self-reliant. A roof over one's head CAN work miracles, and not just the Christmas Miracles kind.
