Last night I had received the email below from Mark Horvath (nonprofit: www.invisiblepeople.tv). He is launching a new effort on his war on homelessness, by creating a site for the homeless. This will enable the homeless to be able connect to services as well as help educate about what their world is like. Please take a look, and I want to say that Mark continues to do a fantastic job!
Tonight I will be launching We Are Visible http://wearevisible.com
The focus of this site is to give the power of social media to homeless people that we all take for granted
Here is a press release for more info:
Really need to get the word out to homeless service providers, social services, faith-based organizations and public libraries
On the “Be Seen” page there is a printable flyer
Here is a direct link to the flyer
I have promo cards people can order and distribute. They are at cost. It’s a great way for anyone to help in their own community
I placed a few images on the net for use
I included this short note a homeless woman left on the We Are Visible Facebook page http://wearevisible.com/graphics/losawarness.jpg
Most importantly we need to be listening to the #wearevisible tag on Twitter and the We Are Visible Facebook page as we build a support community to help hurting people
This really is exciting!
It’s really all of you that made this happen and I am grateful.
