UBCO students go homeless for a week
For the past week, five UBCO students have been sleeping under a tarp on campus, living on doughnuts and coffee, essentially giving up basic necessities to raise awareness and money for the homeless.
It's part of a campaign called "5 days for the homeless," which began in Alberta and is now in 27 schools across Canada, the States and in Dubai.
Daybreak's Madonna Hamel went to visit three of UBC's participants in their temporary shelter under the Science building.
Austin Newton greeted her at the "front door."
