*In the wake of a disorderly conduct arrest, Adam “Pacman” Jones made it rain on the homeless Monday by handing out $100 bills, according to a message on his Twitter account.
The Cincinnati Bengals player says he gifted 15 people with the cash before announcing his next act of benevolence will be to help needy mothers.
“I just give (sic) 15 homeless people a 100 next I’m pay (sic) for 15 mothers bills that’s in need,” he tweeted Monday.
Today, he followed with: “Last night I give this one dude a 100 that was homeless and he said PAC I’m not gone lie I’m going to get a bottle of Jack and I just lol.”
Meanwhile, Jones paid a $130 fine after being arrested for disorderly conduct last week. He is also scheduled for trial next month on an assault charge stemming from allegations that he hit a woman at a nightclub. He has pleaded not guilty in that incident.
Anthony Cymerys, known as “Joe the Barber”, has been providing free haircuts to the homeless of Hartford, Connectict, for 25 years.
*Don’t you wish that the good people from the neighborhood would get the attention of Fox, CBS, CNN, or any major media outlet?
The good stories always seem to fall by the wayside…until now.
Filmmaker J.V. Harvey has taken it upon himself to profile the good samaritans of the Hartford, Connecticut neighborhood where the homeless come to congregate and get good home-cooked meals and professional haircuts from not social service programs, but normal everyday people who want to help in their community.
Anthony Cymerys also known as Joe the Barber, has been providing haircuts to the homeless since 1988 for the price of a hug.
Drew Gooch, 17, is homeless student that is graduating at the top of his class and a full ride to Middle Tennessee State University.
*There are plenty of students that have problems to contend with at home that no one knows about.
These brave soldiers still get up every morning and go to school to get some relief from their situation and try hard to focus.
Drew Gooch is a high school senior that was living in his 1997 Toyota Camry because his mother’s live-in boyfriend is a registered sex offender which prevented him from legally living with her.
He has had an uphill struggle to survive, but managed to earn a full scholarship to Middle Tennessee State University, along with the Bootstrap Scholarship, a scholarship for “hardworking students who overcame odds to excel in their classes,” as well as a Martin Luther King Jr. scholarship.
He doesn’t mention much about his mom in his story, but talks about how he has taken care of himself buying his own groceries and washing his clothes and simply fending for himself, according to the Daily News Journal.
He told Nashville’s News 2 how he had been taking care of himself for as long as he can remember.
Billy Ray Harris is a homeless man in Kansas City, Missouri, who discovered an engagement ring in his donation cup and held on to it until its owner came back to reclaim it.
*When reading the news these days, we feel like the world has sunk into some sort of morality and/or integrity vacuum that is also sucking the hope out of us.
That’s why when even the smallest moments of courageous love is extended from one to another, we applaud and we applaud loud!
Billy Ray Harris is a homeless man that often takes up residence underneath a bridge. He was on the street asking for donations when Sarah Darling came by and emptied her change purse into his donation cup.
Well, she didn’t just give him her change, she mistakenly threw in her engagement ring, according to CNN.
She went back to find him, but he was gone. When she came back the next day though, he was there:
“I asked him … ‘I don’t know if you remember me, but I think I gave you something that’s very precious to me,’ and he says, ‘Was it a ring? Yeah, I have it, I kept it for you,’” Darling said.
Obviously, the ring is worth much more to her than money and both her and her husband showed their gratitude by setting up a donation site for Harris that has raised $95,000.
*Russell Simmons is urging New York’s Mayor Michael Bloomberg to come to the aid of the city’s homeless in the wake of superstorm Sandy.
The hip hop mogul spoke out about the horrible circumstances faced by the homeless after New York was ravaged by the storm on Monday, and accused Mayor Bloomberg of failing to deal with the situation.
“They’re f**ked. It’s terrible,” Simmons said in footage obtained by TMZ. “We have so little regard for the homeless in New York already. I mean, I love Mayor Bloomberg, but he did a sh**ty job with the homeless. And now look at this mess. Really, I don’t know what to say.”
Asked about how his own property was affected by the storm, Simmons replies, “My crib in the Hamptons might be twisted. I am less worried about my house in the Hamptons than I am about the homeless.”

Brian Kilmeade, Gretchen Carlson, and Steve Doocy are the hosts of Fox & Friends where they introduced an anti-Obama ad that begins with 'Fox & Friends Presents.'
*It’s never been a secret that Fox has been and remains at the top of irresponsible and inaccurate journalism.
They play the game of simply reporting the news, but anyone with eyes and ears can see that it is news with a slant … a conservative slant. But, now they’ve taken it a bit too far by blatantly campaigning for the GOP.
Fox’s top idiots on the network’s Fox & Friends thought they’d take a little walk down memory lane into President Obama’s campaign by putting together a medley of his campaign speeches and his campaign slogan of Hope and Change.
But what was supposed to be a retrospective was a blatantly conservative anti-Obama campaign ad that features foreboding music, homeless people on the street and a family counting change at the dining room table. (more…)
