This video is by HomelessFonts which is a project created by The Arrels Foundation. What I love most about this project is that not only can you purchase these beautiful handwritten fonts for yourself or your business, but the homelessfonts.org website also includes profiles for each font creator. If you’re interested in learning more, you can connect with HomelessFonts through their Facebook and Twitter. Thumbnail image by Byron Bignell, used under Creative Commons license.

Homelessfonts is an Arrels Foundation initiative which consists of creating a collection of typefaces based on the handwriting of homeless. The idea behind these typefaces is for people and brands to use them in their announcements. All profits are intended to help the 1400 people supported by the Arrels Foundation.
