Homeless Man Looking for Work Has Teen Girl to Thank for Positive Change

By 2 years ago

Anthony Johnson was down on his luck.

He posted a “Work Wanted” sign at a Hasting bust stop in Sussex, England, to try and find himself a job.

The sign read: “I will do a trial for free to show how I work. I don’t take drugs or drink. I will also do dog walking/minding, window cleaning, shopping, gardening, car valeting/washing, housework, cooking. Anything to earn a living and make life seem worth living.”

16-year-old Charlotte Howard spotted the sign and got to work. She posted a photo of the sign on social media and started a GoFundMe page to get Anthony a car. The campaign took off and a local charity also stepped in and donated a car so the money raised from the GoFundMe went to provide him with supplies, food, and additional resources.

A local landscaper contacted Johnson about starting a home repair business, so he also now has a job.

“It’s not like I haven’t previously been asking for help but all it takes is an open-minded person like Charlotte to come along and help,” Johnson told the local newspaper. “She saw me and recognized my position and decided she wanted to do something to help.”
