The Cardboard Shack Beneath The Bridge

by Tim Huff, release date 2007-05, The Cardboard Shack Beneath The Bridge Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Cardboard Shack Beneath The Bridge books, One of the greatest tragedies of our time is homelessness. In an age of prosperity and plenty, tens of thousands of people have become victims of homelessness. Tim J Huff has been called by Andrew Stawicki of the "Toronto Star" "as not just another outreach worker, but a tireless activist for the cause of the homeless." Tim is a writer, illustrator and veteran street worker. He has seen first-hand the terrible plight of men, women, children- even entire families, living on the streets of our urban centres. He has listened quietly to their stories, watched them cry beneath the overpasses where they sleep, brought them coffee and sandwiches. He has been spit on and called names while sitting with them as they panhandle from the sidewalk. But when his own daughter, at age 8, fixed him with her gaze one day as they strolled below the Gardiner Expressway and demanded to know why there was a mattress on the ground, he struggled for words to explain that someone slept there and why. After 19 years of working with these poor misunderstood souls, Tim has written and illustrated a book to help adults talk to children about the homeless. Tim, who works for Youth Unlimited, a faith-based charity aimed at helping teens and young adults, has come up with something he hopes will help other parents facing the same dilemma. He both wrote and and illustrated this picture book that lays the groundwork for parents and teachers to start talking about homelessness with children. The book is called The Cardboard Shack Beneath the Bridge. Written in 16 stanzas, each accompanied by a colourful drawing, it gently raises questions in language a preschooler can understand and leaves it to the adult to decide where to take the discussion. As Tim says it so well," I wanted to start with everybody just seeing each other as human beings. Everyone has their own story, whether we know what it is or not." He'd be happy if that's something children could take from this book. "The Cardboard Shack" is an invitation to learn about real people with real problems. And 'we' are the real solution"

Keep On Standing

by Darlene Polachic, release date 2007, Keep On Standing Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Keep On Standing books, The 1989 student massacre in Lubumbashi, Zaire under the brutal rule of dictator/president Mobutu Sese Seko was almost the end for brothers Michel, Fabian and Aliston Lwamba. Escaping with only their lives, that day was a grim and deadly reality marking the beginning of an incredible saga that changed their lives forever. During the chaos, the Lwambas were separated from each other, living in refugee camps for over five years, and leaving many of their relatives for dead. They survived violence, disease, depression and starvation before they met God and found in Him both the reason and the will to keep on standing. Eventually Michel and Aliston were sponsored and given the opportunity to migrate to Canada. Their brother Fabian, who was feared to have been killed, was later miraculously reunited with his brothers in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan in 1997. The purpose and healing people found in the music the brothers shared in the refugee camps, led to them later founding the group Krystaal, whose award winning music style blends gospel, hip-hop, R&B and African styles. Today, their aim is to share the hope that music brought them with others, particularly children who, like themselves, have been orphaned by war. In 2004, they released their album "Keep On Standing" which was honored with several awards and nominations including four gospel music MAJA Awards, Artist of the Year, Group of the Year, Album of the Year and Canadian National Song of the Year; two Canadian Gospel Music Association awards for "Contemporary Gospel Album of the Year" and "Best Urban Song"; and four nominations by Canadian gospel musics peoples' choice VIBE Awards. They have recently released their latest album entitled Speak To Me. On Sept 22, 2006 they launched the "Krystaal World Peace Tour" advocating peace -- politically, interpersonally and spiritually -- around the world. Keep On Standing - The Story of Krystaal chronicles their amazing journey and the miraculous series of events that reunited the brothers in Canada. This is a true story of hope, faith and deliverance.

It S Hard Not To Stare

by Tim Huff, release date 2013-09-15, It S Hard Not To Stare Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download It S Hard Not To Stare books, It’s Hard Not to Stare is the second book unpacking StreetLevel’s children’s Compassion Series. The material encourages children to look at their world through the lens of compassion and understanding, rather than assumption, judgment or fear. Tim believes this approach will impact the way we care for, and befriend, people in our communities and beyond, and that when we nurture compassion in a child in one area of life, the potential is greater that this goodness will spill over into all other areas. Tim Huff addresses issues related to disabilities in this book, as he did homelessness in the first of the series, applying the same tender and truthful prose, along with bright and courageous child-friendly illustrations, which have been heightened by the insights and wisdom of his professional peers, educators, moms and dads.
