Dallas, Texas – April 1, 2013
Nancy Brinker, former Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure CEO, has a new cause. She is the driving force behind a new non-profit called, GPS 4 Homeless. The project is collecting old Global Positioning System (GPS) devices and giving them to the homeless.
In a news conference held this morning Brinker explained:
“The homeless are just people who are lost and need direction. That is exactly what a GPS device does and if homeless people could afford a GPS device they would no longer be lost! I don’t know why nobody has thought of this before!”
A spokesperson for GPS 4 Homeless added:
“When one of our people upgrade to a newer model they put the old one in a drawer. Now it can be put to good use for those people.”
When asked what they meant by ‘our people,’ the spokesperson responded, “You know, us.” Asked if they meant wealthy white people, the spokesperson replied, “Who else would I be talking about?”
“This is one cause that has no political division. Everybody wants to help the homeless and that’s what we’re doing.”
GPS 4 Homeless is currently only in Texas, but their plan is to expand into Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Mississippi by 2014.
