Homeless 24

What does it mean to be homeless 24/7? Well, a young Barbadian man took to the streets and was homeless for 24 hours to get a taste of just what it means to have no place to call home, while raising awareness for the cause. What he found out was heart-breaking: vagrants and the homeless need more than food and shelter; they need to feel human.
