In a world where we are all stuck in the monotone march to the our jobs, we can often forget to be human and lend a hand to those in need. When i came across this story my heart went out to Ms Baker as she was inspired by selflessness and decided there and then she wanted to make a change.
Regardless of what people thought and bear in mind it wasn’t part of her day Jenny has decided to do the unthinkable and i’m behind her 1000%.
In a nutshell, Ms Baker got talking to a homeless man in Dalston, East London and conversation took over. She found out that he came to the UK to look after his sick mother and since her passing, he had fallen on hard times, became homeless and wasn’t able to fund his return back to Jamaica.
His request for money didn’t come and in place was a beautiful request for ‘Ginger Beer’, a popular drink amongst Jamaicans and Caribbeans. One of the only things that remind him of happier times in his homeland. Ms Baker was captivated by his story and decided to create an online fund to help Micheal back to Jamaica.
Through the help of social media, Jenny (Twitter: @Bakeyboo) has raised over £800 with a target of £3000 of well wished donations towards his flight.
I wish her all the luck in the world, thank you for restoring faith in humanity!!
