It appears that people are still blind to the epidemic of homelessness, or just seeing somebody living on the street appears like a regular happening. One association is trying to do something about it, and their approach was amazing.
Since 1872, The New York City Rescue Mission is been helping those living on the streets, and recently, they dressed up the relatives of some individuals as homeless people and recorded their friends and family walk right by them on the street. None of them realized that the person laying on the dirty and cold cement was one of their loved ones. Those homeless people were their spouses, sisters, uncles and cousins.
In this video you can see the participants shocked while watching the footage back (realizing who the homeless people were). What an incredible approach to urge individuals to pay attention on those unfortunate, and to stop being blind.
