The When Sidewalks Smile Project is all about sharing the message that what our dying world truly needs is human hearts filled with compassion, kindness, and unconditional love (especially for the outcasts of society). Our goal is to continue creating and publishing this book series; sharing the beauty and love in the hearts of the homeless.
Poppa Chuck begins the series by sharing his very personal and heartwarming experiences that take place on the streets and sidewalks of Portland, Oregon. When Sidewalks Smile was launched on January 21, 2022, and is currently available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
Initially, the first edition was more than twice its current size. Many stories and anecdotes were set aside for the second and third editions, with several other remarkable stories under construction for future editions.
The When Sidewalks Smile Project plans to one day accept submissions from individuals sharing their own stories of love, intimately found on the streets and sidewalks of our world.
Poppa Chuck, along with others seeking to share in his experiences; walk the sidewalks of our city loving the unloved in the simplest of ways. One of Poppa Chuck's favorite things to do is take Coco Donuts out to neighborhood homeless camps. The results are always beautiful and surprisingly powerful. Partner's like Coco Donuts Uptown help to foster love, community, and hope which creates positive change in our world.
