Get Percy (24) off the Street

Get Percy (24) off the Street

Personal message

PERCY, 24, IS HOMELESS. 

"Sorry please get back to me when you are done so we can talk, so that we come up with a solution. Because I can't take one more night on the street, please. I thought I could. I can't." 

This is the SMS we received from Percy. He's young, kind, and does not know how to survive on the street. He's currently studying to become a barista - he has a bursary - but they didn't pay his accommodation fees and he's been kicked out onto the street. HE REALLY NEEDS OUR HELP...

We want to raise money to rent him a room in Randburg - he's currently sleeping on the pavement in Blairgowrie - so he can finish his course and get a job. On that note, does anyone own a restaurant where he can work, get experience and get some money? He's even gone as far as saying he'd work for free if he has somewhere to sleep :( Obviously this is not something we want as a solution for him, though. 

All money raised in this fund will be used to get Percy off the street and allow the chance he so desperately craves (and deserves) to make something of his life. He's so young and so hungry to succeed, we OWE him a change. 

If you can help in any other way, please reach out to Kelly-Ann van der Meer or Sammy Parrish on Facebook or get in touch through the One SMALL Act of Kindness page.
