Tony, street artist in Savannah | Attempting zero waste lifestyle in a military household.

We were tagged with a related article to this one! How nice! Thanks so much for that & for the rest of your questions about Tony, we like to get their stories too & share them here & on our blogs!

We are all about stories & we believe we know Tony & know part of his story but it’s up to him to tell it all! Savannah can be rough on folks who are on the downward spiral & just trying to stay afloat.

But thanks for having one of our posts as a related post – wonder how you found us too!

And thanks for the exposure, we advocate for the people you may meet on the streets of Savannah to give them a better life & to help them raise themselves up with a hand-up not a hand-out! Stay tuned for more stories like Tony’s from us too & watch as we get a Housing First model going here in Savannah to end chronic homelessness!

  4. Wow. What a small world, huh? We thought Tony might be homeless, but we didn’t inquire too much. We just let him talk. I think your site is fantastic! Thank you for putting it out there. When I wrote my post, I looked for related articles and yours just popped up. It was as if Tony had been written about before. May you all have a blessed Christmas season. And if you see Tony, be sure to pass on our hellos. We truly enjoyed Savannah, he made us think and gave us a brilliant memory! 🙂

    • Thanks for the post on your experience here! We are trying to get it out there that the homeless our visitors meet are real people, with real stories & needs! And we want our local tourism business sector to realize that not always do our homeless make issues for them & their businesses & in fact our visitors know about homelessness already, see it in their own communities & want to see that a destination that like also gets it & wants to relate the fact that our community has a compassion & serves their needs too! We have several street ministries that actually most visitors to Savannah, when they see them in action, relate very well to the fact that the homeless need the hand-up not a hand-out & that we are doing God’s work when we minister to & feed the homeless with the Word & God’s Love, not just physical food! We feed their spiritual bodies too & with the Love that is shown some in fact become spiritual & it helps them raise themselves up out of their homelessness in ways that the “system” can’t do by itself!
