TMZ notes Mensa spent the night in the streets on a night where it was 37 degrees, highlighting what homeless people go through every night. Barbie has been doing so for weeks. The two are teaming together to raise $1 million in an effort to open a shelter for the local homeless population. They currently have pulled together $126,000.

Englewood Barbie’s cause has attracted support from Dwyane Wade and Yandy Smith. Actor Jason Weaver also hit Instagram and shared a message about the cause.
