Homeless to Farm Hand
Chattanooga, Tennessee—(Wise Brother)
Last month, a woman who owns a farm near Toronto struck up a conversation with a homeless guy named Brian Bannister, who’s 60 years old. He’s had a tough life and lost two wives, one in a car crash and the other to cancer. So he told her he’d sort of just given up on life. But now things are looking up.
She offered him a job at her farm, and he took her up on it. She also got him his first haircut in two years, gave him a phone, and started a GoFundMe that’s raised over $8,000 to get him back on his feet. He got emotional talking about it, and said he can’t believe anyone would care about him so much. (Here’s a photo.)
