Before we go, I want to introduce you to Tom Hathaway. Tom is a mailman from Janesville, Wisconsin and known as “The Awesome Mailman”.
Tom noticed that there was a growing population of homeless people in the area and he wanted to do something about it. In 2013 he organized the very first “Helping the Homeless” fundraiser right in his backyard. In five years, this mailman has spent all his free time raising over $35,000 for local homeless organizations.
"I deliver mail on my own route, so those 500 people I deliver to, I consider my neighbors. And some of those people have told me that they have to go live in their car. So, I couldn’t just sit and watch this happen. Homelessness can affect anyone – even the population in Janesville, Wisconsin." says Tom.
Steve Harvey loves what Tom is doing and so do his friends over at Sam’s Club. They want to make it easier for you to keep up the good work by providing you with $5,000 to help your community.
