As most of you know, Steven and I just drove back to Florida from Arizona but on the way here, he asked if we could stop by his friend Alex’s place for the night in Arkansas so we did. I’m sure some of you have seen the photo of his friend and I:
This friendly giant and his mother are two of the friendliest people I know of. His mother is disabled, so she doesn’t work and Alex is unemployed because he has to stay home and take care of his mother. They don’t have a lot of money, well in all honesty — they don’t have much money at all but they were generous enough to open up their home to us and my dog and told us to make ourselves feel at home and help ourselves to anything we wanted. I returned my gratitude towards them by buying them some groceries & lunch and they were so overwhelmed from joy because they really appreciated the help — even if it was small. Alex has gone through a lot the past couple of years and he is still one of the most humble and modest man alive so I want all of you to please either reblog this or go vote for him in this sweepstake for him to have something new to sleep on, here is his description for why he wants to win:
“Hi, my name is Alex.. I’m around 6’8.. I’m living with my mother who is disabled and she has the only bed in our house.. I am living Conway, Arkansas. I had to leave college because she needed me. I have been sleeping on couches for around 6 years.. because of my height. it’s hard to find a bed that fits me haha. This couch doesn’t fit, but I can end my knees and be ok for the time being. I have a lot of back aches, but its ok. As long as my mother is happy and okay. Im 22 years old. I have an old Sony TV that weighs about 300 lbs and is only 40 inches big.. but the screen tears around the edges and the color is going. I’ve had couch woes for a long time, and would love the opportunity to be a part of your Cool My Couch contest. Thank you for your consideration. byebye, Alex.”
This contest does not benefit me at all, I am just trying to help him out because I know he deserves some luck in his life so if all of you could just take a few seconds out of your day and go to the link below and vote for him, it would mean a lot to me! Thank you so much if you do -
