A homeless veteran spent his last $20 to walk and get a gas can, fill it with gas, and walk back to help a woman who became stranded on I-95 after her car ran out of gas. Woman returned and brought him $20, some food, and some clothing. She then started a gofundme to help raise money to get him an apartment, a reliable car, and 4-6 months living expenses. She set a goal of $10,000. The page has already raised over $36,000. This right here what people should do. Help one another out. Its a shame a veteran is homeless to begin with so Im glad hes getting help

Yah what homeless vet has a 20$ bill and nothing else?

And why 20$? 10$ would do the job if not less

I dont use the site but I’ll venture a guess that by now around 80-90% of gofundme type things are scams.

Fwiw it's now over 160k. If legit it's awesome. Lower taxes allows people to give more charity. And one way or another the people who are giving are doing it for the right reasons. I hope it's not a sailboat scam

If my wife was ever dumb enough to run out of gas, on a highway in New Jersey ( theres a rest stop every 10 feet) with my kids in the car and didn't hit some strange guy who approached the vehicle with the mace I gave her, daddy might have to raise his voice a wee bit when she got home.

Lot of negativity on here. 

 

Despite how our politicians, media, SJWs, and corporations bend Americans over and rape them on the daily I choose to believe that the people of America are still good. 

 

And if this is a scam, well props to them. They took advantage of social media manipulation of the masses to get a few bucks from 10k people.

Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, it is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver. ~Jack Handey (VIA IronToeNedney)

No sh*t.  If I were ever inclined to donate to something like this and I got to the gofundme page and it was over 100k I'd find another "charity" to donate to.  This one did well enough.

He's more than likely mentally ill. Such is the case for most homeless people.

The funds should be put into a trust for his overall well being.

If not he'll be back living under a bridge in no time.

He did say he has 2 buddy's he wants to help as well.
So a hundred grand each is a good start.

Cool, this lady is now rich and Im still a loser. All because I dont have the guts to run a scam like this and chance it going viral.

Anyone who thinks this bum is getting a single cent is delusional. The lady who started it is the scam artist and will be pocketing every cent.

Screw it, Im gonna start the human fund.

That's even worse.  Do you think people who contributed wanted to give money to people who weren't even part of the story and hadn't done something nice?  If what you're saying is true it just means they should have shut this fund down once they had enough for the one guy it was intended to help.

I'm very cynical of people asking for money. Why? Bcoz a lot of people suck, are w/out conscious and are born liars.

 

That being said, I'm also one of the most compassionate people you'll ever meet. I usually give something if I have it on me.... Especially if they have a dog, damn - I'm a sucker for the pooches.

This I agree with. Start another gofundme for one of the other homeless vets to help get them back on their feet.
