Homeless Man Gets Housing and Work Thanks to Teen Girl Who Saw His Plea for a Job at a Bus Stop

A homeless man has been given a job and a roof over his head thanks to a teenager who saw his impassioned plea.

In a bid to find himself a job, 37-year-old Anthony Johnson posted a “Work Wanted” sign at a Hastings bus stop in Sussex, England.

The sign read: “I will do a trial for free to show how I work. I don’t take drugs or drink. I will also do dog walking/minding, window cleaning, shopping, gardening, car valeting/washing, housework, cooking.”

“Anything to earn a living and make life seem worth living,” he added.

Luckily, the note was spotted by 16-year-old Charlotte Howard. After she snapped some photos of Johnson’s sign and tent, she posted them to social media and started a GoFundMe page in hopes of drumming up enough cash to buy him a used caravan.

*** and ***.

“I wouldn’t have got anywhere looking for a job if it wasn’t for her,” he added. “She really is incredible.”

Amazing how a motivated teenager can solve a individual’s problem.

How many “opportunities” to do the same have I missed in my life?

Charity is best done by individual effort and look what one youngster can do.

Imagine what a society can do.
