Jeffrey

Jeffrey easily stood out sitting on the curb typing into a laptop. It’s something you don’t see every day, but more and more homeless people are using laptops, tablets, and smartphones as prices drop.

I met Jeffrey in Toronto, Canada. I love this video because while I was interviewing Jeffrey a truck made us move. As many of you know we do not edit our videos so you get life as it happens, and this time it’s a little awkward.

What really is amazing about this story is a little hidden. When I asked about the laptop Jeffrey responded that his sponsor got the computer for him. Naturally, I thought Alcoholics Anonymous. But this sponsor is a person who decided to help Jeffrey go to school. That got me thinking about how it would be so awesome if homeless services developed a mentor type program to connect people who want to give to an individual that needs a little love!
