This #book, written by the homeless, can be read only when it’s cold

Invisible is a book you can only read in the same conditions in which it was written – outside, and in the cold. Homeless people are “invisible.” We feel discomfort when we see them; we feel guilty we don’t help them. As a result, we usually pretend we don’t notice them.

Every year, hundreds of the homeless die of hypothermia, because they have no shelter and no help. In Poland only, as many as 75 homeless people have died this winter. To draw attention to this issue, and organize support for those who most need it (all the homeless?), a unique book was released. Entitled Invisible, the publication includes texts written by homeless people, who frequently visit the soup kitchen in Warsaw, Poland, run by Kapucynska Foundation, a non-profit organization focused on helping the poor.
