Richard Riordan Volunteers To Spend Night With Homeless

Downtown Los Angeles (CBS 2) — Former L.A. Mayor Richard Riordan volunteered to spend the night with the homeless Saturday in an attempt to demonstrate an innovative new mobile shelter.

It's called an EDAR, which stands for "Everyone Deserves A Roof." Each EDAR is a four-wheeled mobile unit which carries belongings and facilitates recycling during the day and which unfolds into a special, framed tent-like sleeping enclosure with a bed at night.

For just $500 a homeless person can get off the streets and sleep comfortably and securely.

Donations can be made in any amount at Everyone Deserves A Roof.
