Sweater #53


Placed at the Naperville skate park, this sweater is a reminder to  youth that there are others out there that might be struggling with issues other than perfecting various skate board tricks and moves.  Ironically, many youth who struggle with homelessness are often highly undocumented and aren’t even aware of their struggle as they may be couch surfers or living with multiple family units.  This particular suburb of Chicago is a more affluent one that provides upper scale shopping just down the river walk from this location, which makes it an ideal prompt for social action.
