He is our local hero.
As shared on our community faceboik group here are words said well by another member:
"Everyone may see pulling and fixing the sidewalk grass and weeds. He’s a Vietnamese man who has been through a lot of physical and verbal abuse for his genuine act of kindness in cleaning rubbish and fixing people’s yard and sidewalks for nothing in return. I was very lucky to have had a long conversation with him in which he has told me that he carries a chopping board in his backpack as he has been foolishly kicked in the back, people have taken their dogs and cornered him in car parks, people have offered money and called the police and have stolen his tools and emptied his hard days work of cleaning up our community back onto the sidewalks and streets. As a community I just want everyone to recognise and appreciate this genuine and beautiful soul and hope everyone shows him support and appreciation as he does not want a single thing in return, but is fulfilled with helping the community! Please spread this so the abuse stops and let him continue doing what he enjoys! he is harmless and has been through a ton so if you see him please just lend him some water and say thanks so he can meet the many of us that does appreciate everything he does!"
Ive had the honor of meeting this man before and hes such a generous, selfless person. After seeing his kind face on a facebook post and reading the comments ive decided it is time for the community to come together and help Loo out for all the help you may not even notice he does for everyone.
Id love for him to be recognised so have made a go fund me page so we can give this guy something back. Ideally id love to get him some great tools for his gardening, a better backpack and if we meet that goal even just money for him to spoil himself.
Ill be going for a drive before work thursday to find and get in contact with him so we can arrange a shopping spree for Loo and give him what he deserves. Every dollar counts and would be muchly appreciated .
Kind regards, Amber
