#12DaysOfGiving Day 6: Mark Horvath & InvisiblePeopleTV

Day 6 of the #12DaysOfGiving challenge features Mark Horvath. According to his Twitter bio, Mark (aka @HardlyNormal) is: "Just a hardly normal guy trying to navigate through an abnormal world by helping others. Founder @invisiblepeople & @wearevisible" I had the privilege of meeting Mark in person for dinner this summer while we were both visiting Winnipeg, Manitoba (where I grew up and my family still lives). I will say that Mark is a very humble, passionate man who has the knowledge & experience to shine light on things that many of us would normally avoid. Mark's is the Founder of InvisiblePeople.TV and thus that is his charity. It's a noble cause, so I'll let his own words describe it:     Invisible. Forgotten. Misunderstood. Increasingly, these words apply to a growing homeless population. What if you could change how society views and deals with homelessness and poverty by helping someone share their story and start a conversation? What if that conversation led to an idea and a movement that would ...
