A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to spend some time with some pretty amazing people. They were taking part in the 5 Days for the Homeless campaign, sleeping outside to raise a little money for Dans La Rue, an organization that helps homeless youth get off the streets. I was actually making a short documentary film about the whole campaign and about the people participating in it, and the dedication that these young men and women have for this cause is inspiring. I’ll let the film speak for itself.
