INVENTION SPOTLIGHT: A SOLAR-POWERED TENT FOR THE HOMELESS

I know, I know – I cover homelessness a lot on the blog. A huge reason for that is because, like it or not (for the record – not), it’s prevalence is undeniable. There are over 500,000 homeless people in the United States. A 2016 survey even found that Washington DC had one of the highest homeless rates of 32 US cities. Yikes. But the reason I keep covering it is because there are more and more people taking a look at this issue and tackling it from new, innovative angles. It’s proof that people rule and 2017 is quite a time to be alive. INVENTION SPOTLIGHT: A SOLAR-POWERED TENT FOR THE HOMELESS
