The Story

My friend Ryan has had a really hard life and needs our help. I met Ryan when he was parked across from my apartment building. Ryan was sitting outside and had his dogs in a little fence. I asked if I could say hi to his dogs and almost a year later I call him a best friend. 

Ryan has an amazing heart. He helps others in anyway he is able. He has disabilities from the effects of child abuse - he has told me stories about growing up... and no one should have to go through what his parents did to him and his sister. He is physically disabled from the abuse, has mental disorders and learning disorders. 

With only $770 a month from Social Security disability, and bills taking up the vast majority of this limited income, Ryan needs more help. He has lived in his 1977 20ft motorhome for 8 years. Sometimes he has a driveway to park in and sometimes not. I want my friend to have a better life, and not be stressed about money all the time. He has some credit debt that is under $5,000 and that's not much for most people but that's over half of his annual income and its $200 worth of payments a month. His motor needs work dome so it can be driveable again. He also has debts to friends that he’s itching to pay back. This is a stress we can take from him, I feel if we work together. Please Share! I read somewhere that every share generates $30 in donations. I just know we can makes his life better. Ryan is 37 years old, let's do our best to make his life better then it's ever been, let's show him we care.
