A homeless man spent his last $20 to keep her safe. She’s raised $34k to repay him



A feel good story for Thanksgiving

Here is his GoFundMe if you woukd like to help this hero/homeless man.

"lock the doors while he walked to get her help. He went to a nearby gas station, used his last $20 fill a can and brought it back to fill up her car."

-------
A homeless man spent his last $20 to keep her safe. She’s raised $34,000 to repay him
NOVEMBER 22, 2017 12:45 PM

FLORENCE, N.J.
Kate McClure didn’t expect to run out of gas on her drive to Philadelphia last month.

And she definitely didn’t expect that her misfortune would give her the opportunity to change someone else’s life.

Pulled over on the side of I-95, McClure, 27, was approached by a homeless man named Johnny. She was apprehensive at first, but Johnny told her to get back into her car and to lock the doors while he walked to get her help. He went to a nearby gas station, used his last $20 fill a can and brought it back to fill up her car.

Grateful, but without a dollar to repay him, McClure promised she would come back with something.

In the weeks since, she’s returned to the spot along I-95 where Johnny stays with cash, snacks and Wawa gift cards. Each time she’s stopped by with her boyfriend, Mark D’Amico, they’ve learned a bit more about Johnny’s story, and become humbled by his gratitude.

Eventually, the Florence Township couple knew they had to do something more.

“I would say, ‘I keep thinking about that guy,’” D’Amico said. And McClure was thinking about Johnny, too.

So they launched a GoFundMe campaign, putting an ambitious $10,000 goal and hoping to rein in a few hundred dollars to book Johnny a motel for a few nights where he could clean up, and start to get back on his feet.

As of Wednesday, November 22, 2017, the campaign has garnered more than $34,000 in donations, and continues to grow.

“It just blew up,” McClure said, noting that donors have come forward with $5, $10 or even several hundred after she’s shared the GoFundMe to various Facebook groups.

Johnny, who’s 34, told McClure and D’Amico he has been homeless for about a year. He said he was previously a certified paramedic, and also served in the Marine Corps.

After moving around the country for a time, he came to Philadelphia a year ago with a job lined up and some money to buy a truck. But soon after the job fell through, leaving Johnny surviving off meager savings.

Later, he lost his paperwork, rendering him unable to work. One night on the streets turned into a week, and ultimately a year of homelessness.

Learning his story, and sifting through his old Facebook photos, McClure and D’Amico said they were shocked to see how quickly Johnny’s life had changed from that of a working man who vacationed on the beach to one living off the streets of Philadelphia.

“It’s crazy, you can relate to that,” McClure said. “You look through and think, ‘that could be me.’”

Last week, they surprised Johnny with the campaign, telling him they had already raised $1,700 and planned to keep going.

“That changes my life, right there,” Johnny said of the $1,700, captured in a video McClure took. “I’ve honestly met more good people than bad,” he said of his time in Philadelphia.

The couple understands how their help in reaching out to landlords and vouching for Johnny’s character will help him overcome some of those hurdles.

“If we just handed him the money, it’s not going to happen,” McClure said.

Johnny has started the process of getting his paperwork replaced, as he’s currently without identification or Veteran’s Affairs papers, McClure said. He hopes to get a job at the Amazon warehouse in Robbinsville, and down the road, hopes to take the test to become recertified as a paramedic in Pennsylvania or New Jersey.

And McClure and D’Amico are confident they can get him started on that path soon, hoping to place him in a room to rent in an apartment within two weeks as they continue to fundraise.

“When I still look at (the GoFundMe), it blows my mind,” McClure said. “It’s actually going to happen for him.”

Most people expect homeless people to be dishonest, drug-abusing, alcoholic morons with no morals. He’s expected to rob her, steal her car, etc. Instead he’s a former vet who is down on his luck. A paramedic means he’s no dummy. Lost paperwork sounds like a nightmare and he just gave up.

I’m glad he can now buy a house, maintain it by working, contribute to society and be proud of what he’s done.

This is such a lovely story. Sometimes we forget that people can be generous and kind without any ulterior motive. I'm not a cynical person, but sometimes I can be pessimistic, and these kinds of stories restore my positive thinking.

I noticed the same thing. It seems like the only people who are angry about this are those on the right. Crazy.

I understand people wanting to help. The goal was $10k. If you see over $200k already pledged, why give more? I'd give more if he stated his plans but so far no word about that.

I read this story earlier, while a great story, wondering why a homeless person would put his last $20 in the gas when a fiver would do to get her to a petrol station, I do wonder if the whole thing was a set up. But i´m sure who they are and their backgrounds have been checked, so if it´s legit, damn nice & amazing story

On the GoFundMe page, in the image gallery, one of his friends posted a screencap from his Facebook from 2012 where he mentioned helping a different stranded motorist with a flat tire and kids in the car. Evidently he's been helping people for a long time.

On the GoFundMe page, in the image gallery, one of his friends posted a screencap from his Facebook from 2012 where he mentioned helping a different stranded motorist with a flat tire and kids in the car. Evidently he's been helping people for a long time.
the homeless guy wrote this on his profile?


just to put all this into perspective...

Yeah he wrote it on his FB profile in 2012, before he was homeless.

That's fucked the council looking to fine homeless people thousands of dollars instead of helping them

People are so stupid. Why still donate if you see he already got more than $200,000? He is now richer than the average hard working porn producer.

Sheep mentality. People are fucking stupid.

And the guy didn't get shit, yet. The bitch can give him his $10k and keep the rest.

This could also be an elaborate scam, planned just in time for the holidays to con gullible people.

this is not a lovely story. It's a prime example how people are extremely gullible and dish out their hard earned money they worked their asses off for to some random scam campaign with a rehashed sob story.

I was talking to a friend of mine and this campaign came up. Turns out there was another exact same story, only the gasoline was a train ticket. This turned out to be a scam, confirming my instinct that this is a hoax.

A simple way to make people donate, make the donaters feel special like they did something good and share it on social media to show their friends how good they are, baiting more of their soft naive friends into funding this scam campaign.

You worked for your money. Think about the hours and effort you put in to earn an honest buck. If this scam story would be true, why didn't she give him a reasonable amount that fits the spent $20 and the effort, in private?

Naive, gullible idiots lining up for their quick fix of feeling and appearing to be 'caring'. Idiots.
