BENEFITING: INVISIBLE PEOPLE
EVENT DATE: Aug 25, 2015
This August 24th I will have 20 years sober. It's nothing short of a miracle that I have even 1 day sober - much less coming up on 20 years. I was one of the "worst of the worst" drug addicts you will ever find. But...I am also proof that when given a chance people's lives can and will change for the better.
To help celebrate my 20th sober birthday I am asking everyone to please help Invisible People fight homelessness by donating $20. If just 500 people give $20 we will raise our goal of $10,000. I know that's not an awful lot, but Invisible People continues to do a lot with a little. Our impact is directly proportionate to the support we raise.

"The stereotypes of people living in poverty throughout the United States are among the most negative prejudices that we have. And people basically view particularly homeless people as having no redeeming qualities” ~ Susan Fiske, Professor of Psychology. Princeton University
Invisible People's work is important! I strongly believe that if the general public viewed our homeless neighbors as being the real people that they are, there wouldn't be such humiliation and violence against people experiencing homelessness! Awareness and education on homelessness can change that, and your support in funding Invisible People is breaking wrong stereotypes and changing how tens of millions of lives view homeless individuals.
DID YOU KNOW that Invisible People is one of the only national awareness and educational campaign on homelessness? Just turn on the TV and you'll see anti-smoking ads, don't text and drive videos are all over the internet, and causes from the need to recycle to global warming are everywhere we look, and they should be. But except for Invisible People, there are zero campaigns teaching the general public about homelessness.
