I am Just an ordinary Guy who has been through a lot of rough times in his life, Ive been homeless, Ive been low on money, Ive been RIGHT WHERE YOU ARE and I did what everyone told me to do, I went to 'The System', I asked churches and charities for help and I was helped on occasion but more often than not, I WAS TURNED AWAY!
Well, I Got Back on my feet again and decided to help people, Not because I want anything from them, Im not even very good at taking compliments and not because I am a 'Charity' because I am not but because I want to do the most good I can do for my community and I know what its like to need or want something for myself or someone I love and be completely helpless to get it and how cold people seem to be when it comes to getting help!
So, what are your NEEDS? What do you wish you could get your son for his birthday or you mom for Mother's Day, Do you need food or clothes or Toys or do you just need someone to talk to? Im here.
Do you just want to be around people and Volunteer Time/Energy to the cause? I am ALWAYS looking for people to Help me with Various Projects!
As I said earlier, I am just one man, I am low income myself-and Disabled, Most of what I do for others, comes from my own Pocket, sure, I ask people to help out with canned food donations or Gift Cards or whatever they can spare and Im still hoping to meet someone willing to help me, help others but even if I dont, I can do this on my own :)
When I can afford to do so, I love to surprise people with things they didnt ask for-Care Packages I call them but Im always paying attention to what people might need and not think to ask me for...Are your bills too high and you need help?
In 2009, I held a Christmas Party in my Apt for The Homeless and Displaced, I live in a small 1 Bedroom Apt but we made it work, some of them wanted to cook to be useful and a man donated $100 in Food and I bought Presents and let them take showers and it was wonderful-Now when I am out walking, I see them and they know who I am-They NEVER asked me for that party and NEVER ask me for handouts, thats a misconception I think about the Homeless :(
We can Meet for a Starbucks or a light lunch (My Treat) and Discuss your Wishes/Needs or we can chat on the Phone, Just send me Your Name & Phone #
I want to help those in NEED, I would give someone the shirt off my back if you NEEDED it but Im not going to be handing out X Box Machines, Cars or Tickets to Paris. Sorry!
Hopefully once you get to know me, you'll see who I am, that I am honest and loyal and Geuninely care about other people and then you'll know Im for real and not just trying to con you out of something!
