Theres a link below to a person who has been helping the homeless. He left his home and business to live with them for 30 days to see what its like. There are videos and pics of the people he met and what its like to be out there. People have been sending him donations of food , clothing, things to help them find work, etc, to give out to these people. He is also using a lot of his own money too as well as having actually taken them in to get them cleaned up and helped them get a place to stay.<br><br><br><br>
He is doing this in Santa Monica and the L.A. area. He has stayed at a friends house here and there when he was feeling really bad, since he did just get out of the hospital from getting chemo.<br><br><br><br>
For those of you in the LA area he is having a big weekend for them before returning home. Once home he is deciding on the best way to help them with what he has learned since he has decided to dedicate his life to helping them. On his site he lists what he would like people to bring to help out if your interested. If I get a ride there I will be going and will bring a huge salad with all kinds of veggies. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>
I wanted to warn you though that one of the videos shows them making hamburger patties, so if you get offended seeing that then don't watch the one called <i>cooking with stephanie</i>. Please look through the other videos and read his blogs over the past few weeks about the people living on the street (it's very sad though).<br><br><br><br>
If you don't agree with what hes doing then please just save your comments for the compost heap. He has already had people tell him how stupid he is to help these people, and if he reads this he doesn't need to hear it anymore. I thought this might be an inspiration for some of you see how much just one person can do. Within 30 days he has helped to get 6 people off the street.<br><br><br><br><a href="" target="_blank"></a>
