Check out this documentary premiering tonight. Crazy!
HOMELESS: THE MOTEL KIDS OF ORANGE COUNTY explores the world of children who reside in discounted motels within walking distance of Disneyland, living in limbo as their families struggle to survive in one of the wealthiest regions of America. The parents of motel kids are often hard workers who don’t earn enough to own or rent homes. As a result, they continue to live week-to-week in motels, hoping against hope for an opportunity that might allow them to move up in the O.C.
Comes on TONIGHT at 9pm/8C on HBO. Watch it and then tell us what you think! I really really hope I remember to turn it on. (I’ll be coming back from a Happy Hour…which, after posting this up sounds kinda wasteful, doesn’t it?)
