It is getting bad out there - Tent Cities

So if you haven't heard, tent cities have started springing up all over the country.

Here are some links with pictures and video:

This is incredible, and ridiculous... the Church needs to get out there and start helping people. I'm serious - we need to start looking at what we can give up, sell, do cheaper, not purchase, etc to start helping these people. Skip your vacation this year. Pass on that new computer/TV/bluray. The Church can shine when times are bad like this!

Don't think it won't happen here... from one of the above articles, there is a tent city starting outside of Columbus. I'm thinking through what I can do to help - what about you? Any ideas?
