Imagination is a magical thing. And when people put imagination to work in service of others, that magic produces real results—and can change lives. A beautiful example of the power of imagination to make a difference in the real world comes to us from Gregory Kloehn of Oakland, California.
One person's trash is another's "Home Sweet Home." Oakland artist Gregory Kloehn makes pint sized homes on wheels from discarded materials he finds on the street. Inspired by the small home environmental movement, Kloehn started making his homeless architecture of fully functioning houses out of shipping containers, dumpsters and discarded street trash. Greg gives his handmade homes away to the needy and thus far has built 10 unique living environments. They may be small, but they have a big impact on the lives of the people he helps. He's a one man affordable housing project.
