Sandy Hickman-Holliday : You already made him miss his bus, you should have given him a ride where he needed to go.

SGTreport : Hey, here's an idea, how 'bout you include a link to a Paypal, or SOME WAY to help the people you interview. I'd like to try to help this guy, he seems genuine and in real need, and I don't know how. LINK???!!!!

Hanapi Hamdan : Money is relative. When you have money, you will have a lot of relatives

Waylon Jones : 3:11 don’t give up man, god damn it

Beerdy - Bruce Lee Central : I donated, I hope the money goes towards helping him and others that are down on their luck.

Atje : He can make 3 wishes....and none is for himself!!.... This man have a good heart.

Dianna Breedlove : No one should be homeless in this Country!

Travis Young : My heart goes out to you, my friend. I'm an actor and have faced homelessness. Being on the street. Its a bottomless pit that the judgemental onlooker can't begin to fathom. I NEVER ignore a man or women in legitimate need. Even if its just to sit with them for a while and listen. Give a cigaratette, make a phone call, acknowledge their existence. Most of the time I can't afford to help myself but I will always do what I can. Always.

RenegadeTimes : I have a homeless friend living with me since November 2017. I saw him on the street emaciated and dirty. He was sleeping in a garage. I have a sun room back of my house so with a twin bed, a new shaver, food and a place to shower he is surviving and thriving now. He has a small job at a good restraunt here. It's not easy as my personal space has changed but I could not in good conscious left him where he was. Human beings were meant to demonstrate love and compassion, to love. Put your money where your mouths are folks. Stop talking a good game and live a good game. Help someone up. Sorry Dennis damn hard I know.

MotownShaker : I once had a client. He was a self-made millionaire selling 2nd hand cars, built it up from nothing. However aged around 38, his company went broke after a divorce, he lost EVERYTHING. His house, business, car all gone. He had £600 (about $1,200 at the time) and suitcase of clothing. He said the day he went broke, not one of his millionaire friends would return his calls. He had to pay to stay in a hotel, that's what scumbags these people really were. Luckily, he had 1 kind friend who put him up. He was eventually able to loan £4,000 and started selling cars again. Fast forward 20 years and he's richer than before, and a LOT wiser from the experience. I can relate to what he says at 3:11. A lot of things ARE out of your control, but you don't realise it until you reach a place like the one Dennis is in. I think the thing that hurts the most (for him and me) is that in your time of need the people closest to you actually offer very little. The fact that none of his friends would offer him a roof is beyond me. Point I'm making is that no matter where you are, there's always hope. This bloke seems genuine, and I hope he finds his feet again (:

CHKDG8 : I used to be a working actor in South Florida from the early 90s to about 8 years ago. It's a pipe dream. One of the villains who worked in Passenger 57 once told me on a commercial set that when he went out to LA for "meetings", he quickly realized that "LA is one big party that you're not invited to". Fast forward to what we know about Pedowood today and how that business REALLY works, I wouldn't touch it again for the life of me. Show business is for the rich, Hollywood elite families and the connected. No question. Everyone else is there to struggle and to get "tossed around" at parties. If you're fresh off the bus, sooner or later you're going to run into a brick wall and you're integrity and identity will be tested. I didn't want to hear the truth until I got out of the business. Good luck to all.

Deathax : Never expect anything from anyone.

Eduard Caupa : A country like the US which is spending more $millions for the next useless war instead of the well-being for its own citizens and homeless people have not the right anymore to call themselves the greatest country on earth. AMEN!🇺🇸👎

The House that Jack Built : Do you know how to get in touch with this man? I have a job i can offer him working with IATSE local 5 out of LA working with stagehands and show sets if he has a trade. I can even get him a ride to work to wherever he needs to go. We also have people working out of state here in LA who rent big houses for many workers while here and I can possibly find him a home there for temp. until he gets him own place. If you want to get in touch PM me here on youtube.

Sathish Kumar : AMERICAN DREAM ??? america great again??? Afford to build borders ?? etc... but cant help own citizen??? rich country with poor nation...

cynthia rouse : Only the wealthy can survive in California. Very sad. Someone should give the dude a gig. There is a good reason they call it 'the boulevard of broken dreams...' it is not what people think, at all. In reality, it is as difficult to merely earn a living as it is to become a 'star'. They have to leave California, it is prohibitively expensive. The poor cannot survive there and SF is even worse. It's a pave encrusted, glittering Venezuela. ; - )

Jdor D : Lord Jesus, please help the homeless of the world. I pray all the homeless receive full restoration in the mighty name of Jesus Christ!

abarronboy : California dreaming,you have a better chance at winning the lottery then making it in Hollywood.

Jason Gates : My three wishes: A job for everyone, a house for everyone, empathy in everyone's heart. When he says this could be your brother, your cousin, etc., people need to remember that. And when he says people turned their back on him when he got down on his luck, that's the unfortunate part of human nature. They like you when you have money. They want nothing to do with you when you lose all of your money. It's sad and unfortunate.

Tribonacci : all the snowflakes cocooned by their families haven't met the real world yet, it's harsh af

The Daily Dee : So all of these homeless people who have nothing are giving you free content for your channel which in turn means money in your pocket. So what exactly are you giving them? What do they get in return that benefits them? TAKING from those most vulnerable and using their situation and vulnerability to further your own ambitions without helping them out is disgusting. Saying you are giving them a voice means NOTHING if that voice does not put food in their mouth and a roof over their head.

FatherBootyHands : How do u know hes not acting

Sumwon Hill : Someone give him some work...so sad❤️

OGO : They need tractor trailer drivers now, companies will train you and will give you money during training for food, and a room while not out on the road during training usually you sign a contract for 1 year to work for them and the training is free, you'll pay back the food money from your earnings over a period of time, this will get you off the streets, food in your belly and a place to sleep, and a job that will pay you enough to get on your feet again, it's hard being homeless but if you really want to there is a way out.

Thomas Simmons : He mentioned that an avalanche of bad things caused him to become homeless. I was hit by a tsunami of bad things and was forced onto the streets of Los Angeles. I was lucky and was rescued by a stranger I met on the internet. I'm still homeless but I now have an income and live in my car and in hotels. Being homeless on the streets is a living hell, you enter an alternate universe. Most don't escape from the streets, I was lucky but it can happen again.

EnoughWithThe B S x100 : If you ever see this ...God bless you man. Love from The UK.

Wild Heart : "America, America, God shed his grace on thee!" If you're wealthy, that is, God help you if the wealth runs out and you can't get a job and you've no health insurance.. Every country has its issues, but we're told this is the "Greatest country on Earth?"

DmY808 : Born and raised in LA. This city once was affordable to most but not anymore. My solution for this guy is move to a cheaper city and get a job so you can at least live off the street. Life is unfair so you better do something because in the end nobody cares.

Wael Angel : My god he's so cute and good looking can I have his number ??????????

Michael Fish : The pentagon recently "misplaced" 21 TRILLION DOLLARS. A fraction of that money could have ended poverty and homelessness on planet earth. They "lost" enough money to stack hundred dollar bills all the way to the moon and back(literally). But that's ok just keep believing their lies & propaganda through the corporate media, overlooking their systematic destruction of the earth and the 26,000+ bombs they drop each year(91% kill innocent civilians by their own admission). Pretend we're the good guys and let it continue while watching the plight of your fellow humans on youtube.

Luke Sky : This is what happens when you vote in liberals to run your state.

Not An NPC : “I moved into an apartment I couldn’t afford” “Sometimes it’s not your choice” Hm

dachicagoan : It's sad that everyone in his life turned their backs to him. Meanwhile, the only person that can help (his mom) is in no position to help.

FIRE SIGN : God Bless Him🙏....He should hook up with Ted Talks.... I know people seeing this will help🙏

snoo333 : Hollywood give this guy a job. he has the looks and probably the acting talent.

Ge0 Arc : Really REALLY!? I will never understand how a man and I use the word lightly with this one, In good shape handsome, Intelligent and articulate could end up and even more stay in that situation!? I am a 40 plus short chubby but still ok looking black man that started with NOTHING!!! No college no family that could help me and living in an area that could suck the life out of you by how depressing it is. I got a job (cleaning dumpsters in the summer heat in TEXAS)! lived in the cheapest room I could find and saved. No it was not easy but I kept moving forward from job to job until I got to the point I was doing so well I could reach back into that ghetto and start helping those I loved! I work 80 hrs a week now paid house cars and a Harley with close to 200k in the bank. Soon I will have enough to start a business all my own and have people working for me so I can relax. Yes life can be cruel I know that first hand but NO ONE OWES YOU SHIT! I feel bad for those who are homeless with mental or physical handicaps but not for people like him. You are the Master of you're life so make it as good as you can! Peace and Happiness to those who fight for it the rest tough tits!

Dan Lord : LA is a hard city. Very severe on the less fortunate, and theres SO many homeless from what ive seen.I say dont quit. Dont give up. Keep hope alive.

michaeldavis2585 : The world need to understand concept that just because your home less doesn't mean your a druggie or a bad person ,situations happen in life and u have no control over ,pay it forward make a difference

Dan Lord : Bad stuff happens to everyone, but sometimes you just gotta get back up after getting hit.And maybe you gotta do it alone. But get back up. Dont let any one keep you down.#1 priority is to stay/get sober and clean.Go to AA/NA meetings religiously. You gotta help yourself first. Keep your head straight. Then take care of basics. Get your ID & social security card and secure them. Go to library, print some resumes. Apply for basic work for any kind of income ie dishwash/busser in a restaurant, car preps at a dealership, etc.When you do get hired, save money.Buy a mailbox at post office. Buy a storage unit and keep stuff there.Get a cheap phone from Metro PCS or Criket.Dumpster dive for food when needed.Find a hidden spot 4-6 hours of sleep a night. Keep saving $ and don't quit. DONT QUIT. You can pull yourself out of this . Its possible.

Musti B.yazici : Trillions of dollars 💵 on war and rubish yet people sleep on the streets .

A K : Aw man this is sad. Makes me thinking how fortunate I am. Move to Alaska man, I think you still can get a fairly decent job here easily.

passtheBuck Canuck : i was homeless , and COMPLETLY embarrassed about it.....Today i own house and am a single dad who was asked by my child to live with me.....SO BLESSED

ab7films : Not just anyone can move somewhere and do whatever they want as a career. Sometimes you need to sacrifice and earn it the hard way and sometimes you can get lucky and get through the easy way. There is no reason though that someone who is 100% physically and mentally healthy should be homeless without a job. Move to cheaper and more accommodating city and find a decent job or two jobs and save your money and invest in yourself. This guy could easily be a youtube personality and vlog his day to day struggles of becoming an actor but you got to get a job and a car dude. We have more jobs than ever before and less people to filll them. No excuses just start working.

william castle : Leave LA!!.. next time you can scrape together enough for a bus ticket move to Greensboro, NC or Eugene Oregon or any other city than LA or NY.... get a job.. theres lots of them now.. get back on your feet and start again even if it's a slow start. For some reason people choose to stay in those cities that are overcrowded/expensive/dangerous.

Blue Spruce : Absolutely typical DISCRIMINATION AGAINST MEN. When's the last time you heard about a woman being made homeless because her ex-partner wiped her out financially? NEVER!

Mr. Grey : Wow. People it’s 2018. Enough of this!!!!!!! We need to help one and another out. I’m not trying to be all religious or anything. But we’re all in this World together. Damn help each other out!!!!!!!! We all can DO MORE. I admit I can do a lot more too!!!!!

Bird Luger : We are all one life event away from homelessness

Keven alvarado : What we do latins we rather live like 20 in one house and be with our families then be on the streets, The question is WHERE IS UR FAMILY

Kyrgyzstan USA : If you have a hands , legs eyes, ears, you have good health, you have brain you always can find a job, everything depend on your queries . USA is country where you won’t find natural food, real love, good friends, but you always can find any job, of course if you are not too picky. People has to look not only at top of the life, sometimes look at the bottom will help you realize how lucky and blessed you are, if compare your self with people who has disabilities, but still working and doing something!!!

Joshua Collins : Pray for the best. I hope you land on your feet. God bless
