The idea for Spare Some Change was born during the production of American Street Kid, a feature length, homeless youth documentary. 

While the team was filming, they discovered two very important things:

1) Most people have no idea about homeless youth, how they end up on the streets or how incredibly challenging it is to get off.

2) The only way to help a kid get off the streets (and stay off)  is with consistency, mentorship and love.

Spare Some Change was formed with the following goals:

  • Use the power of media to shatter the misconceptions and create a wake-up call for America.

  • Engage, enlighten, and empower homeless youth to create change in their own lives.
