A community from Georgia came together after an image of a homeless man who slept in the McDonald's in his city unexpectedly went viral.
Simon Childs (21) was gifted with clothing, temporary accommodation and a car after being photographed at the Fast Food franchise in Fayetteville at the weekend.
A woman cut a photo of Childs and shared it with Facebook, where she complained about his lack of decorum.
& # 39; Another reason to leave Fayetteville, & # 39; she wrote under the image.
& # 39; I was in the McDonald & # 39; s in the middle of town and I saw this man sleeping in the booth, I'm going to tell an employee that someone is sleeping in their booth and her answer was: & # 39; Oh yes, we know, hee hee, it's good & # 39; and I said: & # 39; Not really, but whatever & # 39 ;.
Mail began to circulate rapidly on social media, with many users criticizing women for publicly embarrassing a man who seemed to be in dire economic circumstances.
Simon Childs (21) is gifted with clothing, temporary housing, and a car after being photographed at a Fayetteville McDonald's last weekend. He is pictured with his young son
WSB TV Childs, who revealed he was an employee at McDonald's Fayetteville and caught up at rest in the restaurant between services.
Childs told the news network that he is currently homeless and is struggling with the recent death of his mother.
He also revealed that he worked to provide for his four-month-old son.
The child was shocked as soon as the community started to support him after they heard about his story.
Residents quickly dropped clothes and supplies for Childs and his son at the McDonald's.
Meanwhile, others have offered to pay for hotel rooms for the homeless man until he finds more permanent accommodation.
A 21-year-old homeless father received accommodation in a hotel after a photo of him who slept in a McDonald's was uploaded to social media between services.
Owners of a local hairdresser gave Childs a free haircut, while restaurant owners lent him a car so that he could easily travel to job interviews.
& # 39; I didn't think the community would even care enough, but they care, & # 39; he told WSB TV.
Childs even spoke to the woman who took the photo, who told him that she did not embarrass him as an individual.
It looks like he forgave her for the incident and told WSB-TV that the photo might have inadvertently changed his life forever.
& # 39; I am not homeless, not thanks to her now, & # 39; he smiled.
