The provided goal above is not something we are obnoxiously begging for, 
Sandy is a great man, who has just been down on his luck these past years.. Sandy told me he never panhandles to get money so this experiment was uncomfortable for him in the beginning. Sandy is a free spirit who loves making people laugh, i've known him for months now..

i would appreciate it if you could donate ANYTHING to Sandy Shook ( the homeless man in the video above ) he is a great guy and will use the money wisely ( i will make sure of it ). 
The day i filmed with him, i bought him some clothes and a hotel room for the night ( he loved it so much ) also money for food the next couple of days. Let's all give back to someone who deserves it.

If you can't donate something it's okay, thank you for your interest in the video.

Have a good day!

did you get any money with the t-shirt and jeans? I heard an article about a similar experiment dressing up homeless people as businessman and they got more money, but I guess if you can find a business suit that fits you can find one at a thrift store for around $10 but new they can cost $100's up to $1000's, I bet if he asked for $20 to dry clean his suit someone would give it to him thinking he is a businessman but they wouldn't give a homeless person 25 cents for a cup of coffee that makes me aggravated to think of people like that, but as ancient script has said the wealthy and people who have things will be given more and the poor and those who have nothing will continue to have nothing and what little they get will be taken from them. I wish you the best of luck.
