    1. This project was a pleasure to work on, re-telling the stories of homeless people captured by Mark Horvath on his site InvisiblePeople. We also had a number of essays from contributors talking about how technology can tackle social issues like homelessness. 100% of the proceeds go to Mark's work with InvisiblePeople.
