This Christmas, while you're sitting around the table with your family, take some time to write messages of holiday cheer to people living on the streets who could use a morale boost.

Such an amazing write up of SpaceX's attempt to land a rocket. I'll jump out of my chair and scream if this works.

Write three valentines to homeless people today on HandUp and we'll make sure they receive them.

For the next 2 days you can still pledge monthly support for @HandUp and @google will match your first month. Do it!
HandUp is direct giving for homeless people and others in need in your neighborhood. Your donations are redeemed for basic needs like food, clothing, and medical care through our partner organizations.
