He stood on the street corner, longing for connection. Mumbling incoherent words. People walked by, ignoring him. There was an intensity in his eyes, perhaps scaring some. I got him whatever he wanted to eat; a big bag of cheetos, 2 energy drinks, and skittles. I learned his ‘secret’. He is a ninja in training. He sleeps on the streets, roaming the city at night to fight crime and bring justice. Then he whispered in my ear “I am schizophrenic…” I replied; “Every superhero has his kryptonite.”
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!
