Not too long ago a car hit Greg, fracturing his leg. He was taken to the hospital where they put a cast on his left leg and some stitches on his arm. He was dropped off in Skid Row to fend for himself. I saw him laying on the sidewalk, writhing in pain and shivering in the cold night without even a blanket to keep him warm. So I helped him up put him in my car and drove him to get some pain medicine and some food. Then I got him a room at a local motel to stay for the night. As I was leaving Greg says to me “John, I love you man. You are one cool motherfucker”
People often message me asking how they can donate to support and be a part of what I do. I've never been one to ask for donations, but it definitely comes in handy.
Each person on Skid Row is unique and has their own unique circumstances, so it's hard to anticipate how to address people's needs before I meet them. So having some extra funds gives me more flexibility as to how I can help others.
If you're one of these people who has it in their heart to contribute in this way, this donate button is just a more convenient way to do so. Thank you for your support!
