World Homeless Action Day

So my group, the London Homelessness Outreach Network, has volunteered to take the lead on World Homeless Action Day this year in London.  This is an international day for raising awareness that occurs every October 10th.  Last year we found out about this only about a month in advance, so didn’t have a chance to put anything together.  We vowed at that time that this year would be better.

We don’t really have any set ideas at the moment, all we know is that we want to do something that has maximum media impact, raising awareness of homelessness in our city, and perhaps 1 or 2 simple messages (such as that no one chooses to be homeless, or that the affordable housing waiting list averages 9 years in London).  It is Thanksgiving Monday, so there won’t be a lot of foot traffic, but we could also tie it in with a Thanksgiving message.

What I’m looking for are ideas.  What could we do to make maximum impact?  We have some great volunteers, but just need an idea of how to use them.  I’m open to suggestions…
