YouTube Spotlights InvisiblePeople.TV & Helping Homeless Today

Today on Giving Tuesday, LAist needs your support.
Today, your donation to LAist will be matched dollar for dollar. Your tax-deductible that gift powers our reporters and keeps us independent will be felt twice as strong today, so don't delay!

"Fifteen years ago, Mark Horvath was homeless on the streets of Los Angeles," begins YouTube's introduction to today's user spotlight. "Today, he runs, a project that inspires people who live in tent cities, in shelters, and on sidewalks to share their stories on YouTube."

If you aren't familiar with Horvath's work, these videos are a great introduction. You may also know him from his blog, Twitter, or have had the pleasure to meet him in person.
