On Wednesday 4th December an incredible thing happened...After losing my bank card and having no money in the early hours, a homeless man approached me with his only change of £3 and insisted I took it to pay for a taxi to make sure I got home safe. I didn't take the money but I was touched by such a kind gesture from a man who faces ignorance every day. So I set on a mission to find this man, the more I spoke about him the more kind gestures I learnt about such as him returning wallets untouched to pedestrians and offering his scarf to keep people warm. I was lucky enough to find him again and his name is Robbie, he has been homeless for 7 months through no fault of his own and needs to get back on his feet but cannot get work due to having no address. So that's when I decided to change Robbie's life and help him, as he has helped many others.On Tuesday 16th December I will be spending 24 hours through the day and night as a homeless person to understand the difficulties they face each day. And this is where I need everyone's help, please sponsor me £3 - as Robbie attempted to give me his only £3 - in the hope of collecting enough to get Robbie a flat deposit.
Together our small act of kindness can change someone's life this Christmas and finally get him off the streets safe and warm. Please share with your friends and family. Thank you.
