Remember the “hidden homeless” bus driver Andras Szekely we wrote about in September?
Well, he’s hidden no more.
After our story:
- A big-hearted Malvern woman, Nancy Dougherty, has taken him in. (Sadly, she’s moving so Andras has to move out Jan. 1.)
- The Washington Post, Fox 29, Action News, and the Jewish Exponent all ran followup features on Andras,
And just last Friday, this…
Andras has many angels, none more cherubic than Sarah Doheney, a local PR guru who’s moved heaven and earth for Andras, tapping into her wide network and starting a GoFundMe.
- Midas of Melody Lakes, for rehabbing and transporting the loaded Jeep and donating $200 for tags and fees and a $100 Wawa gift card for gas.
- Paul Huss of Copper Shark, who’s designing a new website for Andras to sell his photos – www.szekelyphoto.com but it’s still under construction.
- Thomas Matthew Designs of Wayne, who’s offered to furnish Andras’ new apartment.
- American Vision in King of Prussia. They’re giving Andras a free eye exam and glasses in January.
- All the local folks with bulging hearts who’ve sold, bought, or featured Andras’ photography. Among them, Main Line Pop Up Shop in Wayne, Grove 1.2.1 in Bryn Mawr, Luke’s Lutheran Church in Devon, and T & E Care.
- Villanova U. Entrepreneur-in-Residence Barbara Bigford, who has advised Andras and first pitched his story to us.
****In the spirit of the season, we hope you’ll consider a small donation to the new GoFundMe. Fingers crossed, it will help Andras rent an apartment.***
And finally, thank you one and all for caring about Andras and sharing his story. Warmest holiday wishes and see you in 2020!
