  1. If these Laws were only set for Americans too. People are too Money Hungry and Greedy. I work for a Company that happens to be so.

  2. Brilliant … As a 50 year old man it makes me proud to watch these positive films … keep it up 👌🏿👍🏿

  3. Homeless and abused kids and young adults these days are fortunate to have such help! Know that very, very little assistance was available in the past. Please make sure to count your blessings if you're in such a situation and access the offered help with humility and sincere gratitude. Good luck! 🙂

  4. Wish you lot made this when I was homeless for years on end man .. I absolutely love this one .. I am fully grateful for what you lot are doing .. for the awareness and the general help you are trying to give the public .. it's not nice being in these stations having to sleep in cold rooms like that.. going to food banks cuz u dont even have a bar of fucking soap .. 💜👌💯
