Spiderman Helping the Homeless

Spiderman Helping the Homeless

From @homelessfriend - A U.K. man is donating his nights to making sure that those in need don’t go hungry. 
By day, this 20-year-old man from Birmingham, England, who wishes to remain anonymous, is a bartender. But by night, he dons a Spider-Man suit and takes to the streets to feed homeless people. The “Birmingham Spider-Man,” as he is known, says that he hopes his work will show others that everyone deserves a helping hand — no matter their situation. “I’ve learned that everyone is the same, we’re all part of the human experience and I ... believe that we need to look at everyone as humans and help each other the same as we would a close friend,” he told The Huffington Post in a message.

Though the superhero suit may just seem like a fun costume, he says it actually draws attention to his cause. “Before when I was handing out food, no one would take a second look,” he told HuffPost. “But when they see Spider-Man handing out the food they come over and ask what I’m doing and are really interested. Most importantly [they] become inspired to get involved themselves.” The Birmingham Spider-Man’s good deeds have already attracted the attention of many community members, who have offered to donate money. The do-gooder doesn’t accept their donations, and instead, urges them to go out and get involved.
