Have The Homeless Become Invisible? Will This Woman Notice Her Homeless Family?


If you live in a big city you are probably fairly numb to the homeless. NYC Rescue Mission did a social experiment where they dressed people’s family members as homeless to see how they would react. It’s a bit heavy, but it’s very interesting. The people in our featured image are this woman’s mother, uncle and aunt…. it’s hard to see the third person in the shot. 

First they had to apply makeup to the family member.


Here you can see a man actually looking at his cousin. Watch the video below to see if he recognizes her. 


The two women in this shot are sisters.


This woman is about to walk up to her aunt and uncle.


Watch this fascinating social experiment below.
