HOW ONE MAN’S PASSION HAS INSPIRED HIS COMMUNITY AND SAVES THE LIVES OF HOMELESS PEOPLE BY OFFERING THEM A BED, HOT MEAL, SUPPORT AND A WARM WELCOME ON HIS BUS
Yesterday we shared a video to the WHOLE_istic Media Facebook Tribe Group about this fantastic project. We were so blown away by such a humble and genuinely kind man that Ed. got it touch with him to ask if he was OK with us using his Social Media images to regularly feature the Big Yellow Bus Project on the_BLOG. Here’s what he said:
“Hi of course you can if it helps bring awareness to homelessness please feel free to use and thank you.” Gerry
“No, thank you Gerry, you’re a wonderful human being and will inspire so many to help others. Even small acts of kindness make a difference. What you’re doing is huge. Good luck to you in all that you do.” Ed.
“This is all so overwhelming, didn’t expect a response like this about The Big Yellow Project as I am only doing what I believe in … I really don’t see it, when your doing things that you want to or believe in, all I know is there are still some kind people left in the world that care about those that are suffering by all the messages I am receiving, sweet x x x” Gerry
Gerry fundraised to convert an old bus and provides seven beds including two lockable female pods together with his volunteers and the support of the community he’s a change maker and lifesaver for homeless people in cirencester, UK
We will be regularly featuring updates and news by THE YELLOW BUS PROJECT including Gerry’s ongoing fundraising events. In March he’s hosting a gig when ‘The Best Amy Winehouse Tribute Act’ in The UK comes to The Old George Inn at South Cerney.
Here’s one for later this month: Bingo Night and Raffle at Cirencester Town Football Club – “A great night out for everyone in aid of The Big Yellow Bus Project.” says Gerry. If he says so, we reckon that’s a given. Friday 25th January at 19.30. Event info here.
