Homeless Mo Homeless man named Mo gets a new pair of shoes

A San Francisco homeless man's plight is gaining national momentum.

Ryan Hupfer came across Mo, a homeless man who's been living on the streets for the past four years, after Mo asked for some change. Hupfer offered to buy him a sandwich instead. They've been pals ever since.

Now Hupfer says he's discovered a whole new side of Mo after he gave him his flip cam and asked him to document a day in his life.

"I told Mo, go out today and just shoot some video. I want to know what you're day is like and I think it would be good to show other people kind of what your day is like as well," Hupfer said.

Mo did just that. Now his videos on YouTube have turned him in to somewhat of a local celebrity.
