A Storyteller of the Streets

Not only is your story worth telling, but it can be told in words so painstakingly eloquent that it becomes a song. — Gloria Naylor

Good News of the Day:
Most people have never walked down the street and looked for homeless people before — most look the other way. But not Mark Horvath. A former Hollywood insider, Horvath has been a drug addict, con artist and, for a brief period, homeless. He says he’s left that life behind, and these days, he’s drawing on his past to inspire his Web site — Invisiblepeople.tv. The site is a collection of YouTube-length video profiles of homeless people he’s met across the country, and it’s become a surprise hit in social media circles. Horvath heads down Hollywood’s Walk of Fame, looking for homeless people. When he finds someone, he reaches into an overstuffed backpack and pulls out a bag of fresh white socks. Nearly everyone takes a pair. And when they do, Horvath pulls out a video camera and asks if he can interview them. http://www.dailygood.org/more.php?n=4730

Visit Mark’s website InvisiblePeople.TV, which aims to change the story around homelessness. http://www.dailygood.org/more.php?n=4730a
