I met this man last weekend. His name is Bill. He has Parkinson's and Liver Cancer and is the sweetest soft spoken older man. He asked me for money to buy food (I had no cash) then he told me he was really hungry and very cold. I have brought him some things to stay warm and food for the night. He then told me he found out he was on the internet because he is the man who Meek made do push-ups for $20. Please share and tag whoever to get the word out there. Let me know if you can help in any way - gloves, socks, food, water, medical. #SPREADLOVE *Update he is also fully aware I have set up a GoFundMe and he has a caseworker that we will be working with to help him get back on his feet*. We are in direct contact with Bill now daily and intend to get him those immediate necessary supplies then discuss with caseworker medical (any medications costs, dental costs, etc) and housing needs that we can help with (once caseworker or we secure housing then Bill will need bed, toiletries, dishes etc)

Good afternoon!
First I want to say how amazing and helpful and awesome everyone is who has donated, whether it was $1 or $500 you have made such an impact and helped!

Wanted to update everyone - as this has been very interesting thus far.

We have been approached by multiple local news stations and first I was very reluctant to be public about this but then I realized it is only to Bill's help and benefit for more people to be aware. I'll post the link below for everyone.

Secondly, for those asking how I'm related - I am not. Simply was walking by him last Friday and something in my heart told me to stop and talk to him and hear what he needed.

Bill has signed consent forms for me to speak to his caseworkers and is so unbelievably gracious and happy that anyone has come to help!

His caseworkers are legally not allowed to be involved in any monetary donations so he has given consent for me to pull funds in my name and then assist and purchase anything that is needed from there. GoFundMe had asked for him to be a beneficiary but in order to be beneficiary you need a bank account and in order to have a bank account you must have funds to put in, an non expired ID, etc etc etc. Lots of fun legal hoops to jump through. So the plan today is for us to begin withdrawing, he is supposed to get housing in 3-4 weeks through his caseworkers but we will assist in groceries, clothes, payments, getting Bill an ID, getting him a bank account, and more.

Again, he is so gracious and so happy that people are there for him!

Please feel free to email me with any questions or concerns.

After reading this I have no problem saying that Meek is a garbage rapper and clearly a crap human being. Best of luck to you, Bill ♥
