Erika Barazza and Heather Warnken both joined up with Kevin and Adam to create Homeless GoPro.
The team gives a donated GoPro camera to a homeless individual, in this case their Creative Director Adam, to record what it's like to live as a homeless person. Adam wears the GoPro in a few recorded clips, giving the viewer insight into hsi experience.
We discuss the goals of Homeless GoPro. Heather and Erika dig in to why they're doing the project. They discuss what they hope to achieve, why it's important in the wider context, and what type of impact they've noticed from the project already.
Listen in to hear about the power of empathy in our lives. Both the girls give accounts on how they got started.
If you've ever had a dream of your fellow humans in need but never knew how, this is the interview for you.
