Last week, a photo surfaced of Kanye West stopping to help a veteran in need. The man was standing on a freeway exit in Calabasas, holding a sign that said “Anything Helps.”
West kindly instructed his bodyguard to give money to the homeless veteran and was later seen getting out of the driver’s seat of his vehicle.
This act of kindness comes as no surprise from the generous Mr. West but it’s still very heart warming.
According to the Military Wallet, “there are over 630,000 homeless people in America. 67,495 are veterans.” This means that 1 in 10 homeless people in America are veterans.
Some of the biggest contributing factors include long periods of unemployment, foreclosure, mental illness, and poverty.
