Relief For Joseph Wayne Nicholas

My name is Ethan Mondelli and I am a resident of the Austin, Texas community.

I am raising funds for Joseph Wayne Nicholas, a homeless man, whose belongings were burned during a riot.

I have made contact with Joseph, he now has a phone number and we are keeping in contact. These funds are being used to help him get off the streets and out of the chaos that we have all seen in the video (linked at the bottom).

The $5000 will be able to get him into housing and help him land a job where he can restart his life.

I plan on withdrawing the funds and going with him to open a private account in his name so he alone, will have access to the funds.

Joseph says he is very overwhelmed by the generosity of those that are helping, and he wants us to continue this fundraiser to help aid the rest of the homeless under I-35.

We will make this our mission.

If you have any questions, you can contact me at [email redacted]
