Chris Pruett is a Lansing-area homeless man who makes sign art and other installations. His colorful cardboard signs preach love, happiness and humor while asking for a donation.
In 2013, he ran a mental health help desk made of cardboard for depressed Detroit Lions fans. His psychological service cost only a nickel.
At the Fledge, Pruett plans on exhibiting 60 signs, including one that says, “If we’re all equal, why don’t 50 percent of you want to say ‘Hello’ or ‘Good Morning?’ There is a whole lot of people that need to get into therapy to just learn to be human.”
Pruett will give a speech at 8:30 p.m. about homeless awareness. The Fledge asks those interested to donate to Pruett’s Street Feeder Wagon Facebook fundraiser. The funds will provide homeless people with clean underwear. Punch and snacks will be provided.
September 29 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. The Fledge 1300 Eureka https://www.facebook.com/ Thefledge/
