A homeless guy offered her his last £3 to get a taxi home when she lost her bank card. She refused, but was so moved by his gesture that she is going to live 24 hours on the streets of Preston with him, to raise money to get him a home. 22-year-old student Dominique Harrison-Bentzen already raised over £20.000.
When she posted a story about the encounter with Robbie, other people commented that they had similar experiences with him. He offers people money when they need it, or a scarf if they are cold. Robbie has been living on the streets for seven months now, according to the English news site Metro, that published the story.
People could donate £3 or more, as a symbolic amount. Harrison-Bentzen wants to get enough money for Robbie to be able to pay a deposit for a flat, so he will be safe and warm at Christmas. When he has an address, he will also be able to get a job.
