Donnie's Living Expenses

11586183_1535922098696095_r.jpegDonnie, aka "The CandyMan" has been selling candy on the streets of Birmingham for over 40 years. Although he receives government assistance it isn't enough to cover the almost 24/7 caregiver costs he has. Donnie is 64, has no family in the Birmingham area and has to pays caregivers to take care of him. This is the main reason you see him out practically 7 days a week selling candy and trying to make ends meet.

Initially Donnie's GoFund me account was opened to raise money to buy him a van. (since his old van was on it's last leg). Through so many gracious donors he was able to get that van. Now he'd like to use this GoFund me account to raise money to help with his caregiver and other expenses. It's an avenue for people to help him electronically.

All funds are deposited directly into Donnie's bank account as it is tied to his GoFundMe account.
On behalf of Donnie, thank you and God bless!!!
