"I understand where these kids are coming from. I was homeless myself, but with the help and kindness of others, I was able get out of my dire situation. Our homeless youth deserve that chance and much more," said Horvath. "These kids need compassion, guidance and care. With Sevenly.org and The RE*Generation, I believe we can really make a significant difference."
Sevenly.org is leading a generation towards generosity. Virgin Mobile USA launched The RE*Generation in 2006 to help a generation help its own. For more information, please visit:

About Invisible People
Invisible People is a grassroots nonprofit founded in 2008 by advocate Mark Horvath. After a successful career, Mark found himself homeless in 1995 following a battle with addiction. He cleaned up his act, and was living comfortably by 2007 but then the recession hit. After several layoffs and a foreclosure, he was once again facing homelessness. That's when Mark launched InvisiblePeople.tv with just $45 and an interest in social media. Mark has been featured by the L.A. Times, CNN, CBS, Mashable.com, MTV, NPR and The Ricki Lake Show. The Huffington Post named him one of 11 Twitter activists you should follow. Mark has consulted for LA Police Department, City of San Francisco, and USC Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism, and more.
