Harry Homeless HIPPIE’S Hike to Benefit Hoosier Homeless & Hungry

I received a call today from Timothy B. Watt indicating that he wanted to donate $21 to the Hancock Hope House. Tim is a homeless veteran from Indiana who has started an effort called Harry Homeless Hippie’s Hike to benefit Hoosier Homeless and Hungry. Tim was at the Hancock County library and asked if I could meet him there to pick up the donation. I asked him how I would know who to look for when I arrived at the library, Tim told me to look for the guy at computer 64 with a long beard and long hair. When I arrived, he was easily identifiable. I introduced myself and inquired about his efforts to raise money for Hoosier homeless and hungry, he explained to me that he intends to walk a crossed the state of Indiana raising funds for organizations that help others. He gave me $21 in cash and another $21 in cash for the Kenneth Butler Memorial Soup Kitchen. Tim also showed me the list of other Hancock County organizations that he attempted to reach in an effort to help them as well.

I was impressed with Tim because he recognized first hand how homelessness effects Hoosiers and he asked himself, what can I do to help? This is a man without a place to call home helping others like himself. Tim could of told people that he was collecting money to help the homeless and hungry and just pocketed the money, but instead, he reached out to the Hancock Hope House and offered to help us by contributing the $21 dollars. Thank you Tim and good luck with your two year plan to walk  a crossed the state of Indiana raising awareness.
