An eye-opening video about the homeless is going viral.
The nonprofit organization Impact Homelessness asked some of the homeless in Orlando to write down a fact about themselves that others wouldn’t know just by walking past them.
A lot of their answers may shock you.
According to the Huffington Post, the stories highlighted in the Rethink Homelessness campaign are to help change damaging stereotypes about those living without shelter.
The video features stories from athletes, a computer geek, and others who are suffering from a serious illness.
According to the Rethink Homelessness Facebook page, “Since the recession began, the face of homelessness has been changing. From school children to the elderly, from the barely employed to the victims of abuse – homelessness can affect anyone…unless we all come together to make a difference.”
