Spread the Love #Tarecsfreshstart
$16,674 of $25,000 goal
Let that sink in for a minute.
So now the tough part. How is Tarec doing?
Tarec is still homeless and jobless, but not hopeless. And because of YOU neither am I. I can't emphasize this enough. The thousands of comments and messages I have received over the past few months has inspired me to finish what I started. Change a man's life. Now with thousands of my closest friends, we can accomplish that together.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you for your kindness and support.

Here is how the $25,000 will be used:
$10,000 - $12,000: 12 months of rent pre-paid
$1,000 - $2,000: turns a house/appt. into a home
$1,500 - $2,000: 12 months of utility bills
$1,000 - $1,500: groceries, clothes, and spending money
The additional $8,000+ will be placed into a checking/savings account under Tarec's name.
I'll be creating a facebook page for Tarec where we will provide bi-weekly updates. Everything will be documented and shared through facebook. Transparency and authenticity are two words that I live by.

LOOK AND READ MATT DEBLASSIO - 1ST OF ALL NO ONE IS BORN HOMELESS!! THE THINGS YOU DO IN LIFE TAKE YOU STRAIGHT TO WHAT YOUDESERVE. IF PEOPLE DECIDE TO GET A JOB NO ONE WILL REJECT THE OPPORTUNITY UNLESS THEY DON'T WANT TO WORK. THERE ARE THOUSANDS OR MILLIONS OF JOBS EVERY WHERE SO GOD GIVES US WHAT WE DESERVE AND WHAT WE LOOKED FOR SO ULTIMATELY IT'S UP TO US TO PROVIDE FOR OURSELVES NOT SOME BULLSHIT GO FUND ME ACCOUNT THAT MAKES IT EASY FOR PEOPLE TO TAKE ADVATAGE OF DUMB ASSES LIKE YOU.
Do you really believe he lives on the street with a tarp to cover him in the rain and cold so he can avoid a job, home and food? Does he look like a guy who expects everything to be given to him? Was his master plan to sleep on the street until a good samaritan and news crew showed up to help him? Do you know most of these homeless people that prefer to sleep in the rainy streets versus getting paid in a warm building?
Seriously I've seen this on the news and the good Samaritan offered to get the homeless person a job and after he was able to get him a job the homeless guy never showed up ... This is bull shit that people ask for help and nothing is appreciated why offer to fund this guy if he only wants to live off the money you people give him? No wonder America is that way it is because of people like that who don't value others and just expect everything to be given to them .. Open your eyes People most of these homeless people don't
Let me rephrase that I am in college and need help for my family. Tuition is so expensive. #Ericstriptoperu
I don't get it. ...how/why did he not get the job in the end??? Is it because he doesn't have a home yet???? What happened? ? Please answer to this. Thanks xx
Got a couple of questions for TZinzun Eddie. Did the Jewish people in Germany from 1933 to 45 all just "get what they deserved?" Did the slaves brought to America just "get what they deserved?" all of them individually? The idea that everyone just gets what they deserve is absurd. While we don't have slavery today (in the US anyway) or a current holocaust going on life is not completely fair either. NOT EVEN CLOSE. None of us can have an accurate picture of the disadvantages Tarec may have had and we have have no right to judge him. What we do know is that Adam approached Tarec - not the other way around. Tarec did not ask for a handout, Adam invited him to lunch. Tarec's critics do not just lack common sense, compassion or a sense of shared sense of humanity, they lack basic READING COMPREHENSION.
The devil will always try to destroy beautiful and good things. That's what he does, so don't be surprised, expect him, identify him and call him out. He hates that! Thanks Adam, from another Jamaican.
I think some counseling maybe a good idea, if possible. (For Tarec not TZinzun).
I'm trying to better myself by trying to go to college and have not received a single dollar yet he get over $8000 in five days! Guess I'll go back to living on the street. It pays better.
