Almost everyday we witness Americans in need, either being ignored or in some cases abused by a government bureaucracy that no longer truly cares about its own.

We watch in disbelief as hundreds upon hundreds of military vets around the nation die while waiting on long and in some cases bogus created lists, to simply see a doctor within the VA System, and we witness the privileged ruling class in Washington exempting themselves from the very laws they’ve created, while according a multitude legal privileges and entitlements to illegal refugees while ignoring those Americans in crisis.

In my heart I screamed a loud ‘yes!’, but to him I just chuckled and said, ‘Yeah dude, we’ll get you some donuts.'”

White continues: “I asked him if he was by himself and he said that he had come all the way out here with the hopes of someone buying him something to eat because he and his mother had nothing at home. He had no phone, a bus pass, and he was depending on the graces of a stranger to feed him within the hour before the bus left.”

However White is providing this young man with a lot more than donuts and has created a “GoFundMe page which raised over $210,000.

White also created a video interview to help Chauncey land odd jobs:
