My name is Christine. I just moved to a new town a few months ago. We have a wonderful neighbor named Boe. His house burnt down just a few short weeks after we moved in. For the last 3 months he has been living outside his burned home under a red umbrella. He was offered a place to stay in a shelter but they told him he would have to give his dog to the pound. He refused, he found this sweet dog as a puppy, starving, covered in fleas and terrified of people. He nursed him back to health and has gone without so much just to make sure his dog has what he needs. He has been trying to gather enough money to get a small camper for him to live in. He was recently robbed in Anderson and has now started over at square one to get together enough money. He is almost 60 on Social Security and gets a Meager $500 a month. He buys what little food he can and attempts to save the rest to re build his home. He has a pace maker and has a foot injury that's slowed him down greatly. I want to raise enough money to help him get a small camper and get his water and power reconnected. He will need a few permits as well. I have contacted a few rescues to help with Manson, his amazing dog. This man has offered nothing but kindness and food he can't afford to give to myself and my husband and children. Each day I see him he doesn't complain even when I know he hasn't eaten. He never complains about the weather. He is always happy and just working on getting his house back. I want to raise him some money to help him get back on his feet and live like any American should be able to live. I want to show him the same kindness he shown me and my family. So if your still reading please find it in your heart to donate any amount so this man will not longer be homeless. Winter time is coming and I fear the worst for him if he can't find shelter. Thank you!

Folks we are sharing updates as fast as we can. Boe doesn't have a home yet because we don't have access to the funds yet. There is process for GoFundMe and it takes time. We are working day and night to get everything to them, and get this process started. We have called utilities we have spoken to a few people people about mobile homes because we feel that will be better and more permanent than a camper. We will post pictures as we get them. We have accepted many donations but are not in a position to send his address out to the world simply for safety reason. Please understand how grateful he is and I am. We hope you will remain patient as we proceed with this process. :) thank you all for your generosity. Also remind to people they need to subscribe to receives updates. That's all for it people aren't seeing these.

Friends, there are so many amazing people who are donating and have donated. I am speechless. I started this campaign in hopes for enough to buy a small camper and hook up power. And now we have even bigger and better options. I'm trying to respond to each message as quickly and efficiently as I can. I want to. I want to personally thank each of you for your kindness and generosity. I'm so overwhelmed by this. Turns out I I needed reminding of how great humanity it as much as Boe needed this money to start over, change his circumstances and move forward. He has such high hopes of bettering the community locally and spreading the love and joy to others in need. His faith is renewed! My faith is renewed. And you all are so extremely kind. Just know if I don't reach out to you I apologize. So many amazing people to thank. :) I will continue updating on housing and donations as I can. It's going to take a little time to coordinate as our main goal is moving the home in for him. Again thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support, your generosity, your time and your prayers. Also a side note. I won't be responding to any negative comments. That question has been emailed to me several times. I also won't be commenting on his medical history. I feel that should remain private for him. Boe is a human in need. A human who loves his dog and who is homeless. And all of you have changed his entire life! THANK YOU!!!!! God Bless! ❤️️
