Humanitarian Artist Builds Recycled Homes For Homeless Residents. Seeing This Man's Kind Heart And Compassion Made Me Cry.
An innovative artist named Gregory Kloehn decided he wanted to build mobile houses made from recycled materials in order to benefit the city of Oakland's homeless residents. He began going dumpster-diving for suitable construction supplies and then started designing and building non-traditional houses on wheels in order to provide impoverished individuals with creative solutions that were an enormous improvement over their vagabound shelters. Assisted by an ever-growing group of volunteers, this kind-hearted artist is helping to make the world a better place to be for those who lives are full of desolation and hardships.
