Helping Percy Get Back On His Feet

$5,774 of $15,000 goal

Raised by 243 people in 15 months
Created May 17, 2017
Percy Brown is a people person, he's outgoing, he loves to laugh and loves to make people laugh! 

I guess you can say Percy is on the low-side, the down-side, the lower end of the spectrum of his life. 

It may not be the life that he's had. It may not be the life he desires. But, he looks at it like this, anytime that you wake up on this side of the grass it's a good thing!!
It's a good thing!!
...........................................................................................................................

He also did work for the Navy, he's an artist, musician, storyteller, accountant, and member of the Grand Center community in St. Louis.

Percy is homeless, and needs help from the community to get back on his feet.

This campaign is to raise $15,000 to cover 6 months of living expenses while Percy gets back in the game.

100% of funds raised go directly to Percy.

........................................................................................................................

On May 16th, Videographer, Brandon Sloan spent a day with Percy as part of a nonprofit project he founded called, A Day in St. Louis.

Percy's dream is to get back on his feet, and have a safe and stable place where he can focus on living rather than surviving.

When I asked Percy what he most wanted to come from sharing his story, he said he hopes people will see the video, and offer help.

Percy would love to live in Maplewood.

This GoFundMe is to raise enought funds to cover 6 months of living expenses while Percy gets back in the game. Monthly expenses would include rent, security deposit, utilities, food, and transportation while he establishes his new path.

Please help however you can. :)
