Mark Horvath has broken the mold. He is not doing what makes sense - and he's not even doing something that pays the bills. With $45, a laptop, an iPhone and social media, Mark developed in November 2008 to tell the stories of homelessness. His work is extremely innovative and his ingenious use of social media is giving a voice to the over 3 million people in our nation that have no home. Beginning July 15 2009, Mark is taking the show on the road using social media and bringing us along for the ride as he visits the homeless throughout the nation. Formerly homeless himself, Mark brings personal experience and compassion as he aims to bring understanding and knowledge to the growing homeless crisis. He will visit 25 cities across the nation including rural areas, larger cities, shelters and youth facilities. You can follow Mark's adventures at and on Twitter @hardlynormal.
