Young man rallies community to save homeless woman's home
PAYING IT FORWARD
Justin Hernandez, a 29 year old man who is a single father, just lost his job, living with friends and no transportation, just moved into the neighborhood a month ago. He was walking his dog past Theresa and decided to stop and talk to her. Theresa told Justin that she's been living in her home for 25 years with her 7 dogs and her husband passed away in 2002. As of a few years ago, her home has not had any electricity or running water.
Justin's heart broke! He knew he had to do something! A few weeks ago he started the "Paying It Forward" page on FB to rally the community together to help Theresa move back into her home. Within a few weeks the page has more than 2,000 caring members.
Justin spends countless hours to make phone calls, news and radio media calls, emails, texting and answering everyone's questions and concerns. He does have help with the FB page due to all the overwhelming!
Justin organized a donation BBQ and it brought in $500.00. He created a youcaring.com page to raise money for Theresa's pre house foreclosure, which is $8,000.00. We support Justin all the way with fund raisers!
Justin's caring heart and dedication is the cause for him to be the MOST DESERVING PERSON!
A fundraiser was held on Sept. 26th & it raised $700.00 for Theresa!!
The Youcaring site has raised more than $3,000.00 as of Sept. 28th!!
There will be a donation BBQ & HUGE yard sale on SAT., SEPT 29th from 8am- ? Please join us! If you're in the area of Phoenix, 29th Ave & Van Buren.
Thank You for your caring vote! <3
