Help Fred get on his feet
My name is Michael Marteen, I'm no body special. But by God's grace I was able to reach out to thousands of people to share a story of a man who tried to move somewhere to start a new journey and in unlikely events ended up homeless. I met Fred sitting outside of a Smart and Final with his resumes typed and neatly folded in a crisp envelope. This man wasn't begging for help, he wanted a chance to earn his help.
Even though Fred finally landed his job. He's on the streets. He's living a "Pursuit of Happiness" lifestyle and I know we all want a fairytale ending for Fred. A restart at life, through all of this Fred even found his daughter who he hasn't spoken with in years. And grandchildren he didn't even know about.
Im hoping to get Fred what he needs to start, either a trailer - clothes - a bike. A step in the right direction. People said they wanted to help Fred also. So this is a chance for the ones that have asked to help. Let's change his life more than just starting a new job. Let's get him starting a whole new path in life.
This is at my request, not Fred's. Funds will be used to further his positive choices and structured so that he stays on that path.
Update for this rainy day in Sacramento.
You all should know, today Fred got treated like a King. Thanks to all of you! Fred got a brand new phone with Cricket Wireless. His last phone charger for his old phone was stolen last night while he was sleeping.
We then went to Target and purchased over $300 in new clothes, toiletries (body wash, soap, toothbrush etc) Brand new rain coat, brand new pants, socks and underwear.
But to end the day, with how bad the weather is, Fred will be in a Hotel the next 2 nights along with a full Pizza to himself. He was beyond happy, thankful and greatful.
Fred is getting there. He's adjusting to all this and for once he's not invisible. Because of all of you! Let's hit that Goal so we can get him a trailer to call home.
Good luck to Fred on his continued path to getting off the streets! Michael, Bravo! You are setting a wonderful example for us all to follow. You looked beyond the stereotypes and helped a fellow human in need. Think of so many others out there like Fred. It just takes one small act of kindness. I look forward to hearing about Fred's progress :). Love and Peace
Please help on my campaign. I have no where else to turn anything helps.
