Why one man is already camping out at Best Buy for Black Friday
Instead, Kevin Sutton is spending 33 days outside of an Orlando, Fla. Best Buy to raise awareness and funds to assist the homeless.
The local radio host and director of a fatherhood program began his stint living in a tent on Sunday, accepting donations of canned food, toiletries, and funds for the homeless in his community."They did a report just recently that 13,000 children are living homeless [in Central Florida.] They get a lot of assistance at schools… but what happens when they go home?" Sutton says of the motivation behind the campout in a video posted to his GoFundMe page, where he hopes to raise $10,000.
Last year Sutton camped outside of Best Buy for 15 days, an effort that he says raised three tons of food for Catholic Charities.
If Sutton makes it 33 days without sleeping in a proper bed or taking a shower, he does have one slightly selfish wish. According to News 6, in addition to raising awareness for homelessness, he plans to buy a television at Best Buy on Black Friday.
