My name is Erik Fischetti. Alex is a homeless man with a troubled mind and brilliant insight. I have known him for years. I have always stopped and had extremely interesting conversations with him.. A couple years back I started posting his views on an instagram account called @atlanticcitycrust. The more I got to know him, the less I could stand the thought of him living there. He has lived behind a gas station in Atlantic City for 11 years. He is weary accepting things from strangers and not competent enough to put things to good use on his own. We have finally broken through his wall a little bit so that he trusted us enough to let us get him out of the cold in the 20 degree weather. We feel like we can get him to accept things but can't afford to provide them all on our own. All of the money donated will go directly to #AlexforpresidentAC - we already got him a hotel room the other night but we would like to get more nights, clothes, hygeine, food, and some accessible funds when he needs things. I will personally maintain his surplus and distribute funds to him for whatever he will allow, whenever he will allow it. I have been with him day and night working on getting him to accept some changes. I will not stop. I will keep you posted on all money spent. Thank you all
