While attending the 2011 ScentWorld Expo, I came across an intriguing parking meter located on Ocean Drive in South Beach, Florida.
Upon further investigation I noticed the colorful parking meter was actually a collection for the Miami-Dade County Homeless Trust. The meters are just one of many initiatives of the Homeless Trust, whose mission to end homelessness in Miami-Dade County.
Miami based artist Romero Britto designed the colorful parking meters. Currently, 70 meters have been placed around Miami-Dade County, according to The Miami Herald.
