From Concept to Creation

Needed Change is a seed from which "change" can grow. With the recent tumultuous political and economic situations, many adopted the slogan, "Change we can believe in." But in most instances, we found it only to be a slogan. As time has passed, the hunger for "change" has starved itself out of the picture. Like numerous others, we felt our job was done and we could wait for this so called "change" to show itself.

Personally, we have not been able to find the change and dreams recently promised. Economic stability, careers, doing what we love, and making a difference have eluded us almost completely. From our own experiences in the workforce or with personal business endeavours, we found ourselves in the same boat as many Americans and citizens of other countries, barely afloat.

Instead of wasting one more valuable minute waiting for this so called "change" we have put into place a plan to submerse ourselves in the homeless culture that millions across the world are suffering from. Our goal is not just to document problems like many before us, but to help make the needed change. By doing so, we hope to better understand and address this horrible epidemic.

By becoming one with this forgotten society we will need to learn to survive all over again. From life's basic needs such as food and shelter to handling the mental strain of life on the streets, this will be a test of will and core beliefs.

Kevin Saftner, Galen Sisco, and Drew A. Dayton are taking the first step in creating change. The first step is not words or feelings, but actions. Our journey will take us to the streets of Miami and undoubtedly many more places. With photography, film, and pen we will document our experiences in this whole new world we will be entering. Together we hope to find solutions for the Needed Change.

How You Can Help Us & The Homeless

Our friend Ricci Minella, CEO of Burgh Cards has set us up with an awesome way to pass discounts along to you while donating to the Needed Change project and homelessness. Jump over to  and buy a Burgh Card, which gives you discounts to almost 50 Pittsburgh Locations. DISREGARD THE PRICE OF THE CARDS ON THE SITE, IT ISN'T UPDATED WITH THIS CURRENT PROMOTION. The card will cost you 10$ and we will receive half of what the cards make to get the equipment we need to continue along with this interactive documentary as well as putting the funds to the homeless epidemic crippling America. We arent ones to ask for money but so many have offered help so we thought this would be a good endeavor. If you feel lead to give, please do so, if not, thank you for how much you've supported us and for your future support. Thanks again guys.
