Raleigh man to live in car for a week

Posted November 29, 2010 9:45 p.m. EST

A Raleigh man is spending the week getting a taste of homelessness in an effort to draw attention to those for whom it is a daily reality.

Will Langley, a web developer at Capstrat, is sleeping in his car and spending the days volunteering with local groups that help the homeless year-round.

"It's already changed the way I perceive people approaching me, asking me for whatever," he said. "I think that I'm just going to volunteer more. It feels good."

Of course, as a web developer, Langley could not take on the challenge and raise awareness without a significant online presence. He is on Facebook, Twitter and the Web sharing his experiences.
