Jillian Harris to live on the streets homeless to raise money for charity

By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 11/13/2012 

Jillian Harris will soon be living on the streets in her hometown.

The former fifth-season The Bachelorette star plans to spend a night on a Vancouver street with nothing but a sleeping bag and a cardboard box to raise awareness and money for charity, TMZ reported.

Harris will reportedly be teaming up with Covenant House on behalf of a cause that's important to her, homeless youth. The 32-year-old's heart apparently goes out to those who don't have a warm place to stay especially with the cold winter months quickly approaching. 

"It's heartbreaking to think about all the [homeless] kids and families," Harris told TMZ, adding that her project will take place on Thursday and she hopes to raise $11,000.

The former Bachelorette selected Ed Swiderski during her edition's final Rose Ceremony, which was filmed in Hawaii in May 2009, and accepted his marriage proposal.

However, shortly after the finale aired in July, two former Swiderski girlfriends came forward and claimed they had been -- unbeknownst to each other -- dating and sleeping with Swiderski before, during and even after the filming of The Bachelorette's fifth season. 

Swiderski denied the women's allegations and Harris stood by her man and moved to his Chicago hometown to continue their relationship in Fall 2009. The couple was considering turning their wedding into a televised special the following year, but they ended up calling off their engagement and splitting in July 2010.
