CLASH OF TWO WORLDS

This is James. He is homeless. He is hungry.

In December of 2017, I saw him in the corner of my eye as I walked out of our Day Spa (located on the Riverwalk level of the Hyatt Regency). It was in the 30’s outside.

I asked him if he needed anything, and James politely said “No ma’am. Just cold is all.” I gave him one of our Ma Hila’s Heart Project blankets. He gave me permission to take this picture.

Ever since, I see him about once a week. I think he makes it a point to walk in the area outside of our spa when he is in need. We have kind of adopted him. Coins. Food. Blankets.

Spent $2000 at HEB on Nogalitas, purchasing groceries for customers. Targeted young moms with kids and the elderly. (April 2016)
