Homeless people are being forced to sleep on London's night buses http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/rough-sleeping-london-night-bus-homeless-a7044726.html.
Rough sleeping on London’s night buses has increased 121 per cent in the past four years, according to an internal report by Transport for London. Across the English capital, there were 213 driver incident reports between 1st November 2015 and 24th January 2016 – an increase from 97 over the same period in 2012/13.

Leaning back on a bench, William Wheaton had his cowboy hat pulled down over his eyes and appeared to be dozing. One hand was looped through the straps of his backpack, holding what belongings he had.

Introduction
We rally, inspire, and equip others by curating stories that move people to action. We network individuals, brands, and organizations to change the way we think about people experiencing homelessness.

Since its launch in November 2008, InvisiblePeople.tv has leveraged the power of video and the massive reach of social media to share the compelling, gritty, and unfiltered stories of homeless people from Los Angeles to Washington, D.C. The vlog (video blog) gets up close and personal with veterans, mothers, children, layoff victims and others who have been forced onto the streets by a variety of circumstances. Each week, their on InvisiblePeople.tv, and high traffic sites such as YouTube, Twitter and Facebook, proving to a global audience that while they may often be ignored, they are far from invisible.

InvisiblePeople.tv goes beyond the rhetoric, statistics, political debates, and limitations of social services to examine poverty in America via a medium that audiences of all ages can understand, and can’t ignore. The vlog puts into context one of our nation’s most troubling and prevalent issues through personal stories captured by the lens of Mark Horvath - its founder - and brings into focus the pain, hardship and hopelessness that millions face each day. One story at a time, videos posted on InvisiblePeople.t shatter the stereotypes of America’s homeless, force shifts in perception and deliver a call to action that is being answered by national brands, nonprofit organizations and everyday citizens now committed to opening their eyes and their hearts to those too often forgotten.
