Homeless Veteran Gets A House And Dream Truck After Giving His Last $20 To Stranded Motorist
Remember the feel-good story that went viral during the Thanksgiving break? The awesome tale where a homeless veteran gave a woman his last $20 to get gas after her car ran out on the side of a highway exit ramp in New Jersey. Then the woman returned to the area to pay the man back his $20 as well as food and clothes. Then she started a GoFundMe account which had raised $250,000 at the time. Since our last report, the GoFundMe account raised OVER $400,000! Now the homeless man has a new home, a car, and a computer to get his life back together!
In November, Kate McClure started an account to raise money for Johnny Bobbitt Jr., a homeless veteran who spent his last $20 to go and get her gas and then returned to fuel her car up. The GoFundMe, which originally had a target goal of $10,000, was such an amazing success that McClure raised enough money for Johnny to get a home and “the dream truck he’s always wanted… a 1999 ford ranger (yes I’m serious).” Now with a stable living environment, transportation, and some new clothes, Bobbit hopes to get a new job and turn his life around.
