Street Debating: A Tool to Help the Homeless


 In the past few years, running polls on social media became a more popularized occurrence.  Many social media channels implemented this feature because they realized people enjoy taking part in polls, as it is a small way to let your opinion be known while seeing what others think as well.  "Street Debating" takes the concept of polling to the streets with a goal of helping to raise money for homeless people.  Japanese designer, Tomo Kihara, created this nifty tool to pose questions concerning politics and activism.  People then respond with money.  If you feel strongly about your opinion, "put your money where your mouth is".  In turn, the homeless person who is posing the question gets to keep the money. What do you think about this concept? Let us know in the comments below!
