48 Hours in the Life Timeline
The Evansville Homeless Project will begin on Thursday, November 18th at 12pm. All participants will meet at Aurora where they will then be immersed in the experience until Saturday the 20th at 12pm. I can't wait to follow this experiment. There are just so many unknowns like; Where will they sleep, How do you charge a phone (If you have one), Where are they going to eat, ect?
