Help John have a place to sleep

I started a post on my facebook page to ask for help  getting a place to stay for a homeless guy who hangs around my shop and it reached over 3000 people. So this fund was the next logical step. Johnny has been homeless for most of his adult life. He is a kind soul and he helps people all of the time even though he has pretty much nothing. I have seen him give his last two dollars to other homeless people so they could get food. The winter weather has taken a toll on him this year and I am hoping to raise enough money to get him a place to stay at least through the winter. If we exceed our goal that would be even better. There are personal reasons John cant go to some of the local shelters and I  would rather not talk about that here. Please understand John is one of the biggest hearted and caring guys I know. He really needs and deserves a break. Please do what you can. He does not know I am doing this yet, but when he finds out Im sure he will get emotional as he does when someone helps him, He never asks people for money.  If you can't donate, then please share this story. This is a real situation involving a good human being who has had a hard life, Lets give Johnny something to smile about this year. Thank you and God Bless you.
PS...if you want to verify this story and fund I am the owner/operator of Shotgun Pete's BBQ Shack in Columbia. Missouri. I have a facebook page for my business and we are on Yelp and Trip Advisor.
The BBQ phone # is 573 442 7878
I am only providing this info for people who are hesitant to donate. John is real, and we are seriously trying to raise money for him to have a safe place to sleep and be happy for a change.
