Hello

This is my Third video created with Sandy, the homeless man of Austin Texas.

Due to popular demand already people have requested another donation page of sandy.

As of now i am in talks with sandy about bringing him back home to (michigan) where he would stay with his family and begin searching for employment. Sandy has a computer science degree, FYI.

This video is very real, and can be emotional to some viewers, god bless.

VVV~Bridget Shook If he is not a drunk or drug addict like the video says he is not then why would there be any bridges burned? Why has your family let their own family member waist away on the streets? Your family SUCKS!!! There should be no reason he should be there if he has a parent and four siblings just plain horrible.

Have you tried reaching sandys family in Michigan? This is my uncle and I don't believe you have the full story or this is a scam for money. If you had actually reached our family including his own father and 4 othersiblings in Michigan there would be no need to raise money to get him,home. I have not seen my,uncle since I was young but I know if he hasnt burned his bridges with his siblings,they would help him. If he has the, what's there to go home to?

Where's the money going, Joseph? Any proof this is being transferred to Sandy, or are you just using this for your morning coffees?

Sandy, I came out of the same group, the Holdemans, as you did. I was born into it though and am very fortunate to have left in my teen years, without ever officially becoming a member. They practice child baptism and membership is automatic with the baptism. They also practice excommunication and with that the shunning of the excommunicated ones. When the children become members they will typically not have a clue as to what the implications will be in a their adult lives. You are welcome to join our Facebook group, The Shunned, for support if you desire. We currently have 399 members. Cheers!

I see homeless people every day in Toronto. It is rare to find one without physical addictions and with such a positive outlook on life such as yourself. In no way am I wealthy, I am a struggling student with a mountain of debt, but I want to share with you some of my small disposable income. Keep educating people about what your life is like. More people need to know that it's not always fuelled by drugs.

I hope that this helps. It is horrible to hear about what happened by getting involved with this church and would like to learn more. Either way, I hope this helps.
