My thoughts are racing rapidly at the moment. I really don’t know where to begin with my explanation of the why, so I’ll get right to the who: Carey Fuller is a single mother of two, who for the past 6 years has lived out of her vehicle. I follow Carey’s blog (Tales From The Driver’s Side) where she posts her daily musings on day to day life as a homeless person helping other homeless people such as Gandalf.
Saturday night I reached out to Carey on Twitter, for a mailing address to send items for her to distribute amongst the local homeless community. My family and I don’t have a lot, but what we do have we’re happy to give.
When I asked Carey if there was anything specific she needed, she replied: “Well usually for homeless, I tweet or post lists on Facebook. Kids and I don’t need much outside of housing….:)”
It breaks my heart to know I can’t provide this. Carey’s story could be my story. It could be your story. It only takes a split second for things to spiral out of control. Friends I have a request of you. If you will, please visit Carey’s blog and click the donation button. Carey gives to others, like herself, who are in this unfortunate situation.
