When I first saw Alex begging as Santa I thought it was cute. But after talking to Alex, and the more I thought about it, I realized how incredibly sad it is.

I met Alex in London. He says he has been sleeping rough for 9 years now. The night before, Alex slept outside on the sidewalk a few feet away.

Alex is on a housing list and hopes to get a flat sometime between Christmas and next summer.
