One fine day, Elvis decided to perform for his friend and, inspired by a report in which an Oakland man built small houses with recycled material, he built a small module as a house so that Smokie would not spend another night outside. .
The life of a 60-year-old woman, known as Smokie because of the neighborhood where she is usually seen, and whose home, for 10 years, has been the streets of Los Angeles, changed forever thanks to the help of Elvis Summers, a neighbor to which humanity and solidarity moved to do something for her. At 60, Smokie has had to make a living wandering the streets, rummaging through garbage and asking for any kind of help. Elvis was one of those neighbors Smokie would knock on his door frequently to ask if he had anything to help him with.
So many days of conversations ended up establishing a bond between them that they ended up consolidating their friendship. One fine day, Elvis decided to perform for his friend and, inspired by a report in which an Oakland man built small houses with recycled material, he built a small module as a house so that Smokie would not spend another night outside. . He quickly collected the money and materials and in just five days he fabricated a small structure with a roof and doors right in front of his house.
The process decided to record it in a series of time-lapse videos, the last one having become a true viral with more than 5 million 300 thousand visits from people moved by the tremendous act of humanity that this man had had with another human being . A gesture that even the local police blessed with the only condition that the house move every 72 hours. After this success, Summers wanted to go further and launched a fundraising project on GoFundMe to help shelter the more than half a million women, children, veterans and entire homeless families that populate the United States.
An ambitious but not impossible mission for this man whose conviction infects. And it is that for him if any American put a dollar out of his pocket, the difference could mean a lot for people who have no more than one floor to sleep on. The project has managed to overwhelm Summers, who cannot believe the response he is having that, in 21 days, he has already managed to reach half of the proposed budget.
