My 11 yr old grandson befriended an elderly man whom is a vet..he has no clothing and wears my grandsons..im wanting to raise a little cash to help buy this vet clothing and necessities...this is a fb post from my daughter... The other day my son (Kamauri- 11) was talking about his friend Frank. He was saying how he does work for this guy and the guy pays him, and how he keeps saying they can hang out at Frank's house and eat pizza and watch football. So as a concerned mother I started asking questions. The more I asked the more I became concerned. Who is this Frank and what does he want with my son? My concerns quickly turned into fear that this man was possibly doing things to my 11 year old. I told Kamauri he was not to entertain ANY more conversation with this man until I met him and had a conversation with him for myself. As I was in the kitchen tonight the doorbell rang. Kamauri told me Frank was here and wanted to talk to me. Great. Now I get to see the man and tell him about himself.. Until I walked down the stairs and saw him standing there.. fraile, dirty, elderly.. and wearing my sons clothes. Immediately he began telling me how much respect he has for me for raising such an amazing young man. Telling me how respectful and kind my son is. Telling me how my son has been giving him clothes because he has nothing. And in that moment my heart broke. Not only for his situation but for the awful thoughts that I allowed to consume me about him. Hes a veteran. Hes divorced. He has nothing and nobody. Except my son. As I went back upstairs with my heart heavy I started to appreciate everything I have (I worked my ass off for everything but not everyone is as blessed as I have been). Kamauri comes to me and says, "Mom, he asked me for-" and I cant elaborate on what he asked for but even that broke my heart. So here I am, begging and pleading for anyone who can to donate to the "frank fund". Im not asking for money, and I'm not asking anyone to go purchase anything. I'm asking if you have any mens/large boys clothing to donate them for me to have Kamauri take to him. Pants, shirts, hoodies.. anything. If you can donate please tell me where and when I can pick them up. Thank you.
