*People are getting creative and using their innate talents as resources to get what they need. Just ask Byon Artrell McCullough, a homeless South Carolina man with a voice – a gift – that would make you scratch your head and question why he isn’t living the life of a John Legend.
The 28-year-old has been on the streets since he was released from prison, but he proudly wears a sign that reads, “Will Sang for food.”
And your ears will be happy that he did.
“Am I homeless? Yes. Am I a bum? No,” McCullough told the New York Daily News.
His Twitter handle is #NoCashFlo, and he was in prison for three-and-a-half years for drug charges. But now as he works on turning his life around he has found a resourceful way to earn his keep and show his talent in the process.
“I’m trying to show, if you show people you are trying to help yourself first, then people will be more willing to give you help,” he said. “Homeless people are people, too. Life does just happen, that can make people feel overwhelmed at times. People should stop judging the homeless. If you don’t have money to give them, try to give them some guidance and support.”
Good advice indeed!
