THUNDER BAY – Mark Horvath, a Huffington Post blogger, @hardlynormal on Twitter and founder of invisiblepeople.tv is seeking to put a face on homelessness. Mark puts power into the hands of Canada’s most vulnerable people: those experiencing homelessness. By giving individuals a voice, he is building awareness and support to end homelessness.
Mark, once homeless himself, understands the issue.
He is midway through the Invisiblepeople.tv cross-Canada Roadtrip coordinated by The Community Action Committee (CAC) and the Calgary Homeless Foundation (CHF). Socially-responsible companies General Motors, Petro-Canada, Virgin Mobile Canada, Hanes, and Delta Hotels are sponsoring Mark as he gathers and posts these real, raw and unforgettable stories on: www.invisiblepeople.tv with mainstream media networks demonstrating the value of his message.
“We’re exposing the un-natural disaster of homelessness in Canada through the personal stories of those experiencing it.” said Tim Richter, President and CEO of the CHF “As Canadians see their homeless neighbours through Mark’s lens, they are compelled to act and join the growing number of Canadian communities committed to ending homelessness”.
“The power of social media is that we associate names, faces and stories with homeless individuals.” said Barry Davidson, Chair of the CAC. “Canadians are listening and communities are galvanizing to take action to end homelessness.”
