Former Marine, Stephen T Millhouse, is walking from Montana to Los Angeles to raise awareness about homelessness and money to help them. You can see his route here
and follow along on his blog
if you like. In the 90's he was living in Los Angeles and was trying his hand at becoming an actor but by 2001 he was homeless and living in his car.
Earlier this year he decided to try and get the word out to people about homelessness so he started walking. He's been walking since July. Just him and a backpack or two , stopping in shelters along the way, being interviewed by news organizations and talking to them about homelessness. He's been interviewed by NBC
, the Idaho Mountain Express
and a lot of other news organizations along the way.
Stop by his facebook
page and say "Hi!"(he could use a word of support). Or make a contribution that will go towards homeless organizations. He's asking for a penny a mile. He's not anywhere near his original goal of raising a million dollars for the homeless but he's still walking.
