Buy That Guy A Sammy: Week 4 of Feeding NYC’s Homeless

100415 - Kevin - buythatguyasammyberkeley

Hey Zenful Dancers!  As I wrap up my much-needed trip home to see family, I am thrilled to announce that this week’s sammy goes to Kevin.  He is a homeless newspaper vendor for Street Spirit, the homeless newspaper that the City of Berkeley supplies for free to homeless vendors looking to become more self sufficient and earn 100% of what they make for selling the newspapers (recommended donation is $1/newspaper) as an alternative to panhandling.  He still had a pretty good stack left to sell and he was super hungry so all I saw was an opportunity to BTGAS!  Kevin’s missing all of his front teeth, so he opted in for a (soft) chicken burrito and bottle of water totaling just under my weekly $10 sammy budget.  Huzzah!

Pay it forward Zenful Dancers and spread the word!
