We often see people that do so pretty whacked out things just for the heck of it or to get their names in a book or a trophy or just because they feel like it.

Occasionally we see these sorts of people doing some pretty crazy things in an effort to help raise funds for different programs.

Well he is the story of a pretty sane, in fact probably highly intelligent mutli-millionaire that hangs with the like of Sir Richard Branson that has decided to run across the United States from the East coast to the West coast in an effort to raise money for Homeless Teens.

 The crazy part, at least to most people is he belongs to a group of runners that believe the human foot was designed to be used as it is and not in a pair of shoes. So this Sane, Intelligent, seemingly Whacked-out Internet Marketing Multi-Millionaire is doing the entire run BAREFOOT!

 It sounds crazy and yet he's pretty far along. It may take a few months, but he can afford it and with his back-up support and people rooting him along, he is determined to raise $100,000.00 million, yes I said MILLION, for the sake of the Homeless Teens.

Un-like most Homeless we see sleeping in and around the stores, alleys, shopping centers and hidden in the bushes and on the beaches in just Maui, there are very few programs that will even consider helping a teen that doesn't check in to their program with their parents or a Guardian.I'm sure many of you including a few in my own family that were either ready to leave the Safety or Craziness of their own homes to move out on their own.

The average working person can't afford to buy food, clothing and gas, so the choice often becomes living on the beach as part of the "Working Poor" class, showering at the beach parks and hoping to look clean enough to stay hired.

Can you imagine being a teen without the rights of an adult, the advantages of being able to apply for assistance and just the general unsafe conditions of trying to find a safe place to sleep at night. Well I think you get the idea by now.

So if you would like to keep up on his progress, sign in here for my updates.
