Demi Lovato has urged her fans to reach out to those less fortunate - after a chance meeting with a homeless woman left her feeling heartbroken.
The Disney star has taken to her Twitter.com page to tell followers about her experience over the weekend (17-18Apr10) and plead with them to be more caring.
In a series of posts, she writes, "It seems like society has become so greedy these days, and because of that it's so easy for all of us to forget what we have.
"I just met a homeless woman sleeping on the sidewalk tonight. My heart is still breaking because everyone deserves a safe place to sleep at night. Especially women. It's so dangerous for her. Please don't ignore the poor. And take time out of your day to recognise the blessings you have."
