On Time for Recovery highlights importance of watches

First published: 24-08-2009

Homeless people in Colorado are being given a boost by a new charity which aims to get people doing something constructive with their lives, all through the handing out of watches.

Chris Orloski, a man who once found himself on the street in a similar position to the homeless individuals he helps out in the US state, now sets up a stand in different locations around the area to give away donated watches, 9News reported.

And in this time-driven world, all the philanthropic man wants is for his fellow humans to value the importance of it.

Mr Orloski told the news resource: "Time being homeless is like time spent in purgatory. It really is formidable. It really is difficult trying to get out of that pit."

"I always have certain places I need to be on time, and without a watch it's kind of like I'm lost."

Casiodigital watches are a particular favourite of those wanting to invest in a cheap alternative, with their digital range starting from as little as £10.
