Britain's Prince William wants to do something about poverty, and has really dedicated himself to understanding the issue.
The royal recently hit the streets of London to spend a frigid night outside in order to get a sense of what it's like to be homeless in his homeland. Last week, he joined an executive from the UK homeless charity Centrepoint, for a frigid night in an alley and William reflected on the experience saying: "I cannot, after one night, even begin to imagine what it must be like to sleep rough on London's streets night after night. Poverty, mental illness, drug and alcohol dependancy and family breakdown cause people to become and then stay homeless."
Prince William has been involved with Centrepoint since 2005, but it really stepping up in game and hopes that he'll be able to do more as he learns more about homelessness; "I hope that by deepening my understanding of the issue, I can help do my bit to help the most vulnerable on our streets."
You don't have to be heir to the throne to do something about poverty -- 1 in 3 homeless people in the US are under the age of 18, so help other teens out and take action to end homelessness. Helping food pantries stock up on food is a great and easy place to start!
